Functionality: The heater in the green hab is working well. Today was a very sunny day and warmer that yesterday. As I was in EVA this morning, Xavier has checked the temperature in the GreenHab this morning. It was around 30 Celsius degrees around 09:45 AM while the temperature in the tunnel was around 12.9 Celsius degrees. Xavier switched on the cooler (on stage 2). The GreenHab temperature was 25 Celsius degrees at 5:30PM while it was 17 Celsius degrees in the tunnel. Xavier watered the seedlings this morning and I did this afternoon.

Status: The existing seedlings in the greenhab are continuing to grow well. There are spinach, lettuce, radish, and beans growing very well in the small pots.

The Vegidair has been installed 5 days ago and is functionning very well (cf photos). We were able to see more sprouts of lettuce and of « roquette » today in the Vegidair but not in the similar pots I put in the GreenHab.
