First HBA tile deployed!

The first tile has been placed on the KAIRA HBA. This was carried out yesterday by the team. As you will have seen from the status report, we went on to complete 5 tiles in total. However, here are some photographs from the very first one, which was placed at location H75 (the westernmost corner).

Some of the crew, after the tile was safely secured in position.

One down... 47 to go (although by the time you read this, it will be more like 42 or 43 to go).
