Hi, Sylvain! Atila, here. I hope you are having an amazing night.
Kevin’s crops are growing pretty solid, Julio already sent a picture. It’s crazy! I wanted to ask what’s the plan for them.
I thought that the seeds on the Petri dishes were ready to be planted on the analog soil, again. They just needed another one more day. The quinoa seeds are not germinating on the control, either. I’m guessing that the day I didn’t water them was enough for them from drying. That almost killed all the project! I will need to continue with my experiment on my university with the analog soil to get solid results.
I think that’s pretty much all, if you need more information about the GH I will be glad to send it to you.
Thank you for being there, Sylvain!
Have a beautiful night on Earth.

Notes and Comments:
I would call today, the day of cleaning. Everyone here is tired. Literally, we cleaned every hole here. There was too much dust. Today in the morning, the commander went to search transportation to return to the Earth. We are sad to leave Mars, and at the same time, happy for returning at home.
From another hand, survivor man is coming. We are so excited¡
