The components of our platform finally arrived yesterday, and we test-built a major part of it today in McMurdo. We will set up the gantry and the tent tomorrow, and we hope to be done by the afternoon. The assembly involved a lot of measuring, levelling, heavy lifting, screwing and bolting. We received much help and tips from Chad. Robin, Maciej, Annika and Thaona worked with us all day. The platform was excellently designed by Bill. We finished assembling most of the platform in 9 hours.
