Dale Cupido - February 07, 2002: comings and goings - Today was quite a rush! I applied for accommodation for Ravi and Barak to
join us in Star City. This procedure normally requires a week's notice, so I
had to send off the application first thing this morning. At about 9h30 I
left with Karen & Karl for our meeting at the Institute of Biomedical
Problems. Karen had to get clarity on her CCE experiment; I had to negotiate
the breeding of mice for our ESCD experiment (as Dr Barry was in
Kazakhstan), as well as confirming the scientific equipment (calibration
gas, dental swabs etc) needed for Lara Keytel's Energy Expenditure
Experiment. Lara will join us in Moscow on Friday.
Karen and I were beavering through our meeting, without any interruptions or
lunch. We completed our agenda at 15h00... and then waited for Karl for more
than an hour... thanks Karl!
I also received a call from Space Adventures confirming that my application
for accommodation was approved.
We arrived back at Star City (local time 19h00) after shopping for more
groceries. Tonight I'm planning to have an exercise session with Karen...
not too long I hope!
