In our short time here, we've decided to leave the Hab in better shape than when we arrived. A large part of our work today was removing all the items from the EVA room, giving everything a good clean and then filing everything back inside. Months, possibly years of dust and dirt were cleared away, leaving a much cleaner area when we had finished.
It was fun to have the whole team working on a project together. As small situations come up in our lives, such as the water restrictions, we are coming up with procedures for people to catalog what is happening and to look at solutions. We now have a good sense of people's capabilities, and allocate each task based on what each person is best capable of.
We're gelling as a group of people and getting stuff done, and it's a wonderful thing to see.
