Wednesday started with an early breakfast followed by a safety briefing. Our next 2 days are all about setting up. Friday, we start operational scenarios. Today, we set the stage. So this meant unpacking computers and setting up a moderately sized computer control room.
Our testing with the rover is performed in a nearby valley. The valley is usually accessed with 4wd but for my first time going in, a few of us hiked in. It was a beautiful hike.
