Summary of internet: nothing to report

Summary of suits and radios: nothing to report

Summary of Hab operations: The Hab is in very good condition. We
spent much of the day working on the Ikea project and have come up
with some exciting changes that will make the kitchen and EVA areas
much easier to use and maintain. We changed the air filter in the
furnace. We are expecting the new stairs, railing and upstairs
ladders to be installed this week.

Summary of GreenHab operations: Atila spent the afternoon working on
the GreenHab. Most of the large plants were dried out and wilting
while others were overwatered. The greens were well tended. We are
limiting the tomato plants to 10, pepper plants to 5 and removing the
melon plants. This is needed in order to have room for the aquaponics
system. There is a cucumber I have my eye on, and if Atila doesn’t
pick it, we will have a nice salad in a couple of days.

Summary of ScienceDome operations: There was new damage to the floor
while Crew 188 was here. There are several small pits and one larger
one in the floor.

Summary of RAM operations: Nothing to report. We are hoping the
electrician can come soon to connect the power.

Summary of health and safety issues: nothing to report

Questions, concerns and requests to Mission Support: None at this time.
