Camera’s system
All 4 cameras have been installed in the hab:
Inner cameras:

  • Science Dome
  • Green Hab

Outside cameras:

  • From outside the RAM observing the main porch and the station
  • From outside the Science Dome observing the observatory

All cameras are working perfectly, except the one from outside the RAM, the problem seems to be the ethernet cable. We have a spare cable and tomorrow we will finish the full system.

Tomorrow the website will be configured, and pictures will be upload to it, so anyone can go and see them. Tomorrow we’ll have more news about this.

Water heater
Up and running. The propane line was secured and the system is already fully operational.

NEW Kitchen Oven
After a long long time, it has arrived. It was picked up yesterday at Salt Lake City and it was finally installed today.

RAM
The breakers and outside plugs have been finally installed, just in time for the soon arrival of the two Rovers.

Lower deck lights
In media res. The full installation will be finished by tomorrow. If the lighting is adequate and enough, the upper deck lights might be changed with this new model too.

Lower deck wall heater
Moved to the right location, connected and fully operational. A replacement propane hose was bought for the water heater system, but it wasn’t finally needed, and it was necessary for the lower deck wall heater, due to the long distance from the propane line in the new correct location

Upper deck loft water tank connection
A male-male connection for the loft tank was bought to be added to the loop, but the leak was caused by the degraded pipe. The leak’s not critical, but a new pipe will be required in the near future.

Supplies added to the Hab:

  • 2 packs of mop heads
  • An M-M metal for loft tank connection
  • The pressurized air pump has a complete hose system already installed and working.
  • The oil pump has a new hose.
  • A handle (and a spare) that was missing from a drawer from the IKEA new furniture.
  • Additional wooden pieces for the “island” in the Science Dome.
