Questions, concerns and requests to Mission Support:
Can we move the humidifier from the upper hab to the greenhouse?
Does the science dome fan consume too much power to run all the time?
The Greenhab supplemental light was used temporarily in the day, does that constitute a Yes under greenhab operations on this form?
For this report I used the current charge status of the rovers, but we did not plug it in immediately after use. Should we use whether we plugged it in or current status?
