Li Ling – Jan 01:

The firework last night was a bit of a bummer, but! 2022 appeared to start with an amazing page!!! New Year’s present for the Swedish team:
RAN is HERE!!!!!! The 40 foot container with RAN in traveled on a truck from Santiago through Argentina and appeared miraculously at the terminal this morning!

Can you find the blue container?

The onboarding for RAN was quite a spectacle. Here are a few of the scientists watching the lifting:
