Happy Earth Day from the Philippine Sea!

Hey SAGANet friends! 

I hope you all had an excellent Earth Day on April 22nd. Did you all hug a tree, ride a bike or read the Pale Blue Dot monologue by our main man Carl Sagan?

Week 1 at the HI-SEAS Habitat!

The first official week of the 4 month HI-SEAS mission occurred Saturday April 5th and was celebrated with a much needed day of half rest. Week one was filled with setting up our new home and adjusting our mind sets from instantly having knowledge only an internet search away to informational access being a full 20 minute delay one way.
