CATH system 1

Making adjustments
Continuing from yesterday, we spent the night in the tent at the first base and on the next morning, 3 of us traveled to the second base to view the CATH1 system.  The ride there was relatively uneventful until we were near our destination, at which point the pilot did some crazy moves that was part of standard procedures.  The second base was located in the middle of a desert, a barren wasteland devoid with not a drop of water in sight.  After we arrived, we immediately headed to the CATH1 location to meet the engineers working on the system.

Over the next few days, adjustments were made to the system until it was ready to be formally tested.  I sat with the engineers during those days to verify that the issues were corrected.
