Three ground anchors were inserted to ensure a safe fix point for the HoloBalloon. The anchors were hammered three meters deep into the ground.
One ground anchor stopped moving after around one meter, probably because of a large rock. It was really hard to remove the ground anchor. The small digger was not enough, but luckily a larger machine from the gravel plant was available. Seeing how hard it was to remove a anchor which is only one meter deep into the ground build up trust that the ground anchor will safely keep the HoloBalloon down-to-the-earth.

This place will be our home for the field campaign in January/February 2018. Even as it does not look very cosy, it is well suited for the campaign. It has a flat area of around 30 m diameter, the stony ground do not get muddy in the winter and it is surrounded by a fence as it is inside a gravel plant. We just do not have power, so we need a generator to produce our own power.
V8 power for the winch of HoloBalloon. I f***ing love Science.
Compared to a cat it is big.
Not only Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un have one.
We also have a “Nuclear button”
