First Week for SpaceX-CRS5 Mission

On Wednesday, December 10th we arrived in Orlando, Florida after a full day of travel from San Francisco.  We couldn’t have asked for a better day to leave, especially since we missed the massive storm that hit the Bay Area shortly after we left.  Since then, we’ve had some time to relax and prepare ourselves for the mission launch scheduled for Friday, December 19th

Here are some pictures of the things we've been able to do:

Dr. Jeffrey Smith, NASA Ames Research Center's Space Biology Project Manager, took a tour of our T-Cell Lab 
The tour continued to the ESA Hardware Lab where the Experimental Units are processed and kept
We visited Cold Stowage to see where our samples will be held after we finish processing them
