Tanks were successfully loaded with oxidizer and fuel.Â Since this is a hazardous operation, all non-essential personnel were required to stay out of 92A-50.Â So we used that as a good reason to hold the first barbeque of the campaign.Â The weather was great, our customer and other grillmeisters manned the grills and kitchens, and everyone put on their coats to enjoy the burgers, brats, chicken, potato salad, baked beans andâ€¦ but we will not bore you with a list of all of the delectable dishes that we enjoyed â€“ check out the pictures!Â We are now getting ready for our next big feast: Thanksgiving. We are celebrating a day early, since joint operations start on Thursday and we have some very busy days ahead. Also included in our Thanksgiving festivities is a trip to see the launch of a Progress mission to the International Space Station!
