Day 3 – A bit of a washout!

Unfortunately one of our mechanical systems has been giving us problems after the fix we prepared before flying out failed to work as well as we had hoped.  We have now finished rebuilding Selene however by the time we were ready to test the performance on the “lunar” ground thick cloud had moved in and soaked the entire LRC site!  Hopefully tomorrow will bring better weather and we’ll find out how Selene performs!

You cant really tell from this photo but its really cold and wet here!  Everyone has had to retreat into their workshop vans
