SCIENCE REPORT – SOL 1
A calibrated pH/EC sensor was located in the GreenHab. Last night the temperature in the GreenHab was monitored and dropped to approximately 19F which would be detrimental to plant growth. This prompted us to ensure the heater in the GreenHab was on and functioning. The temperature was set to 75F and will be monitored throughout the night to ensure optimum plant growth conditions. If the temperature stabilizes we will setup the move plant into the GreenHab tomorrow and begin new germination. We also investigated the equipment that is available for use. We have questions regarding the hydroponic systems available. Depending on correspondences about hydroponic capabilities we will alter our research plans and potential growing areas.
Today, I installed the indoor temperature sensor inside the GreenHAB so that we can monitor the indoor temperature there. In addition, I prepped my time-lapse cameras for use in the field. I set their exposure time and time between frames. We found the geologic maps of the area here in the GreenHab and are ready for an exploratory EVA to look for interesting sites
