LITA Field Testing 2015, Day 6 (April 2)

Yesterday afternoon, the shipping crate carrying the Zoe rover and Honeybee’s LITA drill arrived at Paranal Observatory. We worked into the night and this morning assembling the rover and performing functional tests on its instruments. Today, we transported Zoe to the first testing site and worked on system calibrations. I calibrated the drill’s sample cache carousel to prepare the rover for field testing tomorrow.
