RandySunday morning is a bit of a lazy time here as it is the day off for most people. I will be working though as I am giving half of the Sunday Science Talk tonight. This was unexpected and I first found out when I was getting off the Herc and still had my earplugs in. As I have gotten used to the altitude it has seemed less daunting. In fact I am looking forward to it. It will be a chance to get a lot more people involved in our projects. The other half (of the Science Talk) will be Karina Leppik, a TEA (Teachers Experiencing Antarctica) participant who is working with the AST/RO group.

I slept well last night and I may even try to play soccer today. We plan to take some pictures of the Dark Sector and the CARA telescopes.

Go on to the
next day...
