Today was an interesting day. We started the day with Craters of the Moon! Super awesome. Measured 5% methane concentration in the air, so our alarm kept going off. “As a gas it is flammable over a range of concentrations (4.4–17%) in air at standard pressure.”, so no smoking! People passing by were very interested in what we were doing and why we were off path. Karen took a sample of soil at a temperature of 80 C! It’s crazy that the soil is so hot. Here are the pictures of Craters of the Moon and the sampling involved!
After that we went back to the lab and I spent the second half of the day with filling tubes with different stuff. 49 tubes! Tuesday I am going to measure them every 45 minutes. That will be a big challenge!
When I got home I took some pictures of bugs here, because I found this rhino-like-moth.
Also, I’ve been trying to avoid this hype called ‘Mindful Colouring’. But I caved.
Now it’s time for bed because I’m going to get up at 5.30!!!! To watch the start of Ironman Triatlon at 6.45! Excitingggg!
