When we left off, the team had just begun testing Sunfish under the sea ice. This past Saturday we had hoped to get one of the large sea ice access holes drilled out at our planned camp but unfortunately the cold weather has made for some uncooperative drilling machinery. Thwarted Saturday and again today, we’ll try a third time tomorrow. Once things are running again, we’ll start putting in the first pieces of camp and begin characterizing the currents and environment ahead of Artemis operations.
We did get some time Sunday and went for a hike up Observation Hill, a quick trip that offers incredible views of town and Mount Erebus. Theres a pretty decent trail system around town that we’ll hopefully get a chance to see most of over the coming months.
