The Base Camp has grown by 5 new members in the last 2 days, as representatives of the Spanish Centro de Astrobiologia, Carnegie Mellon University, and the Universidad Catholica del Norte, Antofogasta arrived. They will be working on the lake, and in the “Bio-Dome”, as we call the dome tent set up for their experiments.
The Lake Lander keeps pumping out power, as the strong winds have kept the wind generator working hard, and the sunny mornings provide a lot of power through the solar panels. The Lander has already successfully sent test messages to Flight Control in California, and as soon as tonight might have the high capacity communications system in place and functioning.
