Hey all, Justin again. Out last two days in Greenland were full of beautiful sights, and gas samples. Last year’s sniffers have been sitting for a year just waiting to be sampled, and their wait was finally over. We also took samples from the sniffers we planted this year, just for kicks.
We visited four sniffers in the area around Potentilla and Teardrop, and one sniffer WAY out near the glacier at Fox Den. The trip to Fox Den took us past the locked gate on the road which upped our chances for seeing wildlife, and wildlife we did see.
Before we hit up Fox Den, we took a side trip to the ice sheet to stand on top of the glacier.
We finally got over to the Fox Den site and found the borehole intact and ready for sampling.
After returning to KISS it was time to clean up, and boy did we have a lot to clean up.
Greenland was a fantastic experience, despite all of the hard work. Testing our equipment in analogue environments is a very important step towards sending it to Mars, and we have done just that.
