LITA Field Testing 2015, Day 1 (March 28)

Today, the Life in the Atacama (LITA) field testing team arrived at Cerro Paranal in the Chilean Atacama Desert. The LITA mission involves Honeybee Robotics’ 1 meter LITA drill mounted on Carnegie Mellon University’s Zoe rover in the search for microbes in the Atacama Desert. The team is staying at Paranal Observatory located on Cerro Paranal. For more information about the observatory, see this link: ESO Paranal. We will use the observatory as a home base during the field testing campaign.
