Aquaponics: Atila is assembling it. He is waiting for the amount of water to fill the tank, this is necessary to do the test.

Narrative: The lysimeter is taking data. Today 12 quinoa plants were replanted in the lysimeter over Martian soil. Atila and I have made some experiments to discovers what is a good proportion between soil and water to get the best texture, we have figured out that you need 500 mL of water for 2800 g of soil.
