Changes to research plants: The plans of quinoa over the lysimeter are withered.

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 last day simulation, I started disassembling the Lysimeter, Atila and I replanted 4 tomato plants in bigger pots and started to clean the greenhab.

In the afternoon, I realized that the first digit of the temperature on the screen of the sensor is not showing.

Narrative: Sol 12- The greenhouse makes us remember the Earth and all the commodities that we have there, but the beautiful view of the red mountains of Mars across the glass of the door, make us to feel sad because of the fact that we are going to leave very soon. The planet where we are living on is one of the most beautiful experiences of our lives.

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.

Narrative: Today, we have received good comments because the changes of the greenhab and the general conditions of it. Also we have received a heavy-duty tarp to be put under the celling and protect the plants that are exposed to the radiation.

The greenhab is becoming a place where the crew member search more inspiration or, at least, to see the green that makes them to remember the Earth. Now the greenhab is visited more often

The lysimeter is working and I am doing a test.

Aquaponics: Atila has begun the assembly

Narrative: Today the Greenhab have had some changes, because it was necessary more space for aquaponics and the region 7 was exactly under the heater and in front the fan, so the leaves of the tallest plants were burned, so we decided to change the positions of some crops, the storm tanker and the desk.

The lysimeter is working and today I was working in calibration. Atila start the assembly of aquaponics and is almost finished.
