“It’s a beautiful day”, Susan remarks, as we walk from the dorm building to Building 155, the Galley. Neither of us notice the fog on the shelf. Soon enough we are driving through it, on the 6am shuttle, in preparation for a 9am flight departure. We arrive early to take gravity still readings, and one lucky soul treks off from the warmth of the tent to collect readings from the base station magnetometer, which has been buried and marked with bamboo flags.
Fog here can be impenetrable. Our flight today is cancelled.
