Ready For Kartchner

Hello Everyone,

The exciting news of the hour is that the carbon dioxide meter is now ready to be installed at Katchner Caverns.  The meter will be installed outside of the entrance of the cave to monitor changes in carbon dioxide in the atmosphere caused by cave breathing. In the figure below Dr. Wolfgang Fink is showing the custom battery pack we built for the meter and is pointing to a geologic map of Mars in the background. We plan to measure the composition of cave air near the entrance of Kartchner Caverns as a first step in measuring the composition of cave air on Mars.
