Day 76, 8/12/2012 -- Up and down

Up and down in the very literal sense, for me anyway. I spent most of today climbing up into and down from the gondola to help Kevin and Kate with some measurements they were doing, and then at the end of the day had the joy of climbing the water tower with Jeff with a 30-lb power supply in my backpack and then hanging out up there for the next 3 hours. It was a productive, but very long (10:30AM to 3AM) day at the base. In fact, I should be asleep, but I needed to write this post first!

Elsewhere in the high, Michele spent a lot of time making a power cable for us to use while we are hanging from the launch vehicle, and Andrei made a lot of progress in the mechanical mounting for the liquid cooling system radiators.

I have pictures, but I'm too tired to deal with them right now so I'll post them tomorrow (later today, actually).

EDIT: Pictures!
