Day 38, December 1, 2012 -- More power

Today was dedicated mostly to the power system and gondola scanning. First, the power system -- we've been having some strange behavior from our batteries so Britt, Michele, and Kyle spent a fair bit of time today doing debugging. In addition, KyleH and Jeff started assembling our solar arrays that provide power while we're at float altitudes.

In the late afternoon into the evening, we gave the gondola to Joy and Chappy so they could test scans and flight schedule files. At around 10, I drove Kyle back to the high bay so he could babysit the first fridge cycle after the latest fix had been implemented and brought Chappy and Joy back to McMurdo.
