On Nov. 21st-23rd I collected my first gas samples from the Full-Scale Emplacement (FE) Experiment in the Mt. Terri Rock Laboratory. As each sample required about 2 hours of gas circulation, I spent 3 days working in the tunnel. The absence of sunlight was compensated by local products from St. Ursanne.
