Summary of health and safety issues: Given the presence of clouds during the morning and with little possibility of charging the battery of the solar panels, adding to this the small amount of diesel, the crew decided to follow protocols to save electricity for the night.

However, we received a diesel refill on time and the solar panels got the light from the sun sufficient to let the batteries be charged.

Questions, concerns, and requests to Mission Support: We are looking for a small buzzer to use as an alarm for the level sensor of the water tank. Any idea where to find it?
