Questions, concerns and requests to Mission Support:

White flies are accumulating in the plants of the green-hab, especially in the red cherry tomatoes. The insect killer is almost over, is there any possibility to resupply?

Additionally, Felipe, the crew scientist measured the T° inside of the green-hab with a device that he brought and it appeared to be more than 20° F higher than what the sensor inside of the green-hab showed. He also performed a T° measurement with the same device in the main hab and the T° appeared to be the same of the sensor inside of the main hab, which means that is possible that the sensor of the green-hab is not working correctly which worries the green-hab officer a lot because the T° in the green-hab in the day rises up to 90-100°F, and the plants could be receiving much more heat than they actually need. For instance, today the T° that he measured in the green-hab was 134°F while the T° in the sensor inside was 103°F. María Paula says she is opening the door to lower the T° to 90° approximately.
