Narrative: We received our orientation late this morning, and as such I’ve only begun my work in the Greenhab. It’s an exciting place though: previous crew have left a growing crop of tomatoes, radishes, beans, and other crops. I was advised to use four gallons of water per day, but I only used 2.5 gallons, as the crops appeared to be well watered in the morning.

When I checked its status of the Greenhab at 19:50, the heater was not heating – not sure if it is supposed to be online at this time. It was working earlier today when checked at 12:00. In the end I sorted out that the thermostat was set to ~60 F. Please advise what the appropriate temperature should be.

I’m here mainly as a 3D Printing specialist – I’m wondering if there are any components to improve the work in the Greenhab that I could create?

Have a wonderful night everyone, I’m looking forward to another beautiful day on Mars.

All the best,

Jordan Bowden
