Summary: Our defogging agent is a brilliant success. After two days of EVA use the helmets have yet to fog up on us. In addition to this me and James took the ATV’s quite a distance away in order to test our radio contact at high altitudes. After a bit of a climb we had re-established radio contact with HabCom at a distance where communication was previously impossible.
