Sol Activity Summary:

It’s the bare bones today as it’s a cleaning up day and there is nothing to say but that. Anu went to lab and assembled shelves with Yusuke and cleaned the lab. The two of them also worked downstairs and built new shelves for the smartpot plant project. They cleaned. Anastaysia and Alex also rearranged shelves in the greenhouse . Alex worked on his project the rest of the day with the ultimate field test tomorrow which should be very promising. To cut a long story short, the rest of us cleaned and cleaned.

Something wonderful did happen. We had a lovely dinner together. See Alex’s dinner report. And the sunset was magnificent. More cleaning excitement tomorrow!

The more you know.

This was the last time we had this type of meal for the desert portion of this mission. We were eager to have this meal and sad at the same time, knowing it would be our last time for almost half a year. This time we had a salmon recipe, not too unlike the first time, but very different, it was very delicious mixed in with rice and the eggplants.

Thank you and as always please try this at home.
