Following the Analog Astronaut Conference, the entire team took a well deserve break, a week without hammer, drill, construction adhesive, or paint in hand. Kai Staats was then in Washington D.C. to present to and participate in the National Space Society’s International Space Development Conference while John Z. and Luna constructed a prototype sleeping pod (photos and story coming soon).
We are now engaged in applying the corrugated steel roof to the indoor Mars yard at SAM, with just two weeks remaining in construction at SAM until October. It is our intent to install insulation, air conditioning, and to work toward the pressure seal of the extended habitat.
Stay tuned for more entries!
