15 pm La tarde ya nos invade, David nos motiva a seguir activos, cada vez más compenetrados, Andrea en el ScienceDome, Tom programando en el laptop, Andrés regando en el Green Hab …

Marina acompaña a Luis a una nueva aventura, nos espera el Observatorio Solar Musk. Luis se centra esta tarde en la observación solar; su laptop, su cámara, el telescopio ya están listos. Sus conocimientos hacen que este, uno de sus proyectos, se esté realizando con precisión.

El mate nos hidrata mientras cocinamos un Brownie, hoy será bien merecido, la crew necesita recuperar esa energía…
