Just heard from Astronaut Scott Parazynski. After a few days in thicker air – sleeping on a bed in a a hotel, he is back at Everest base Camp. I will have a Skype chat with him tonight at 11pm EDT. Below is a portion of the blog entry I just posted for him at http://onorbit.com/everest. You can follow Scott’s tracks at http://SPOTAdventures.com
The weather appears to be cooperating, as we had a beautiful, cloud-free morning — and a typical EBC afternoon with clouds and light snow. Some teams have elected to head back up to Camp II early tomorrow, but our plan is to take tomorrow off, and head back up on May 16th. We’ll then take a rest day at Camp II, and target a summit on or about May 20th (when weather is also expected to be calm and hopefully clear).
