Campus wide inspection, if action taken, what and why? Erosion of the hill I try to keep people off is getting worse both by the station and at the Outpost. In addition, the gully created by the placement of the ScienceDome is about 9 inches deep and cutting through the driveway.

Summary of GreenHab operations: Inga wins my “I would definitely go to Mars with them” award. The new watering can may be metal, so it won’t get brittle and break, but it’s about as subtle as a fire hose! Not good for watering young plants. I will order a better one, with more refined and gentler watering capabilities.
