We had planned to sleep in today and to meet for breakfast at 7:00, but I am up early again this morning. It is very difficult to sleep when it is always light outside. Our plans for today are to tour McMurdo Station. We are scheduled to spend the morning touring the Crary Science Laboratory, one of the largest facilities in McMurdo; receive a briefing on the Department of Defense operations in support of USAP by the commander of Support Forces, Antarctica; visit the operational facilities such as weather, aircraft and McMurdo operations and communication; tour the water plant, the power plant and the waste water treatment facilities; then dinner and a reception to meet some more of the scientists working here.
