Bot-House setup at Blood Falls

Dec 2

Today was a very productive day. We finished setting up the tent with all the insulating layers. The carpenters and electricians flew in and installed the heating and electricity. We moved most of the robot stuff into the Bot-House. Maciej and Peter also melted the refrozen ice over the melthole.
