Summit Station, Day 26, 6/29/19

Today we were quickly off and running on repair efforts. The first step was to utilize our go-to spot in the SMG to remove WATSON from the drill. Once removed, this space is not clean enough to open things up and make repairs to the instrument. After a walk around camp with the site manager, we determined the best spot for us would be a work bench in the Green House (not to be confused with “greenhouse”…). Ken quickly got to work removing the guts of the instrument for debugging of the PMT. Ken was able to pinpoint and fix the issue before the end of the day! Tomorrow we will reassemble WATSON to the drill and hope we get a break in northern winds to return to the site.
