"Magnificent and Beggar Land: Angola Since the Civil War" está repleto de informação, até tem opiniões sinceras das esferas mais altas do partido no poder.

After a record-breaking 187 days aloft, we have recently landed the Project’s longest duration balloon in one of our Argentinian recovery zones.

That’s a long time! Enough time to hard-boil 33,660 eggs, or 134,640 if you like your yolk runny (doesn’t include eating time), or listen to Elton John’s “Rocket Man” just over 61,000 times. In the same time it took the Earth to complete half of its annual orbit of the sun, our record-breaker managed to circumnavigate the globe 9 times, enduring temperatures as low as -75c (-103 F) and wind speeds as high as 291 km/h, soaring to a maximum height of 21km and drifting over more than a dozen countries across 4 continents.

Having been in the air for just over 3 months we decided to put the balloon through its paces, making a series of altitude changes on its last circumnavigation to test our ability to fly north out of southern latitude bands. The test was successful and we managed to turn up to the Northern tip of Australia where we were able to access a much slower wind stream going in the opposite direction and sending our balloon lazily back over to South America. Finally, we brought it back into its original southern latitude band to swoop in and land in one of our Argentinian recovery zones for collection.

Recovery operations are now underway to bring the balloon back to the lab so the team can analyze this magnificent specimen and learn as much as possible about what makes such long durations possible, building these learnings into our future long-duration fleets before putting the record-breaker through our recycling process. We think that this balloon has definitely earned its retirement!

Nas horas finais deste ano sinto-me feliz por ter uma família que me ama e me apoia. Por ter uma namorada que me faz muito feliz e me da vontade de querer ser um homem melhor. Por ter o privilégio de trabalhar com pessoas tão talentosas que me ensinaram muito. Sinto-me grato a todos que me apoiaram, a todos os meus professores e mentores. 2014 foi um ano fantástico para mim e sei que vamos fazer 2015 ainda melhor. Feliz Ano Novo.

In the final hours of this year I feel happy to have a family who loves and supports me. To have a girlfriend who loves me undeservedly much and makes me want to be a better man. To have the privilege to work with talented people who've taught me so much. I feel grateful to everyone who's supported me, to all my teachers and mentors. 2014 was a fantastic year and I know we'll make 2015 even a better one. Happy new year.

Neil selle aasta viimastel tundidel tunnen ennast õnnelikuna, et mul on pere, kes mind armastab ja toetab. Et mul on tüdruk, kes teeb mind väga õnnelikuks ja paneb mind tahtma olla parem inimene. Et mul on privileeg töötada koos sellisete andekate inimestega, kes on õpetanud mulle nii palju. Olen tänulik kõigile, kes mind toetasid ja kõigile minu õpetajatele ja mentoritele. 2014 oli fantastiline aasta ja ma tean, et me teeme 2015. veelgi ägedama. Head uut aastat.

About a year ago I met a musician, who'd written a story about how his mother got beaten up by her husband. From that story was born Elsa Figueira, a fictional character, who experiences many of the same terrors, but instead of submission, she stands up for herself. Over these many months, Elsa has taught me a lot about violence. It's incredible that in so many relationships one partner is submitted to fear and physical danger (according to the UN 1/3 of women suffer from violence during their lifetime) and usually this goes completely unnoticed by anyone else. So today we're launching this campaign to take the #ElsaFigueira character through the medium of a 15-min short film to the four corners of the planet, in various languages. Elsa has a message that I care about. And as the author of this story says, "what eyes see, we can change".

You can back the project here:
