Splash Down + 3 Days

I think today was the busiest day so far (at least it feels that way). The highlight of the day was definitely the "sea walk" that Dave and I performed on the sea floor around Aquarius. The weight belt that we wore approximated the gravity that we would experience on the Moon. In addition to the three separate simulated surgeries that I performed while being tele-mentored from Canada and Nebraska, the two education outreach events, and the operation of miniature robots, we also conducted an interview within the habitat with an ABC news crew from Good Morning America. The rest of the crew had an equally busy day and a very successful day. Everyone is doing great and we're looking forward to tomorrow.
