More Antarctic Stuff - Day 299

Here is more stuff that has to be shipped to the Antarctic.  You can see battery boxes and batteries and crates and stuff.  A lot of stuff is going!  The "Do Not Freeze" boxes are going to be filled with batteries, which are all in the boxes to the lower right.  We don't want them to freeze because they will significantly drain the batteries.  When the people who are deploying the system get down there, the batteries will be warm and fully charged, so they can test the system.  The solar panels will be hooked up to the batteries almost immediately, so they can be charged as they lose capacity due to getting cold.  Fun stuff!
