Beautiful day! Snowing softly, sky full of blue-grey nuances, almost purple by evening. Huge light blue icebergs the size of buildings. All shades of cold.

The hab is now securely fastened to the ground. Now the prospect of a violent arctic storm is almost exciting. Bring it on!
Started melting ice for water. We each use 7,5 liters a day here. That's much less than the 105 liters an average person uses in DK. Not showering helps.
8 of 15 trusty Spirafix ground anchors installed. Each anchor takes up to 3 hours for us to hammer into the freezing ground.
Blessed with clear sky and no snow, work began naively. All of a sudden within minutes we had the hardest, coldest storm yet. An arctic slap in the face.
With sore limbs and tired bodies from completing the main assembly in the freezing cold, we're resting in the emergency shelter before the final push!
Our bodies are getting more tired every day from working long days in the cold. Things go slow here in the Arctic. But morale is top as we make steady progress.
Note to self: Don't leave anything important on the ground (such as steel wires for securing the hab) they will disappear under snow in minutes...
Steadily snowing for two days now, and noticeably colder. The sleeping bag was very comfy this morning. We upped caloric intake a bit until we finish the hab.
A little Arctic Fox visited the hab today. Completely white and very curious. We named it Simon. Hab deploying as planned.
Unpacking all the different parts in the container brings back a lot of memories from the warm sweaty days in the workshop with the team back home 🙏❤️
Two significant events today: 1. First snow storm hit us. 2. We popped up the Habitat! We're cold but happy
We pulled the habitat out and pushed it onto it's final location. It was heavy only two people. Everything is prepped for the big unfolding tomorrow.
The habitat has arrived! Incredible to see the container being dragged up on this alien beach. Huge thanks to Royal Arctic Line for getting it all the way here.
Today the water started to freeze - summer is officially over. We go to bed with butterflies in our stomach. We wait for the habitat to arrive tomorrow.
We surveyed the area and found a potential location for the hab! Gentle breeze makes it feel colder despite only -1C?. The sun skips the horizon.
Today we explored the abandoned town of moriusaq. -2 celcius. We got the oven started in our emergency shelter. Container with HAB arriving in 3 days.
We've arrived at Moriusaq where the mission will take place. Waiting for the Hab to arrive. All is good 👍
