This morning I undertook the final alignment and levelling of module E1 so that we could bring module A, the living space module also called ‘Big Red’ in tonight to the best alignment.

I sledged across to site VI together with vehicles necessary for the towing.

We did the final preparations and checking before moving module A tonight.

Thursday 12th January

Today we jacked module A up to height, removed the towing frames so that we could bring in the lifting frame, raise the legs off the ground and add the slippery pads, allowing us to move into position in both the E/W and N/S axes.
