Jellies in the Hangar

We're most of the way done transferring the helium from the first storage bag back to the ship. You can see the large hose running from the top of the storage bag, to a blower unit (blue box near side of ship) and then into the top of the enveloper. We add the helium at the top, which stays at the top of the ship, pushing air out of access ports at the bottom of the ship as it fills.

At this stage, the storage bag reminds us of the jellies exhibit at the Monterey Bay Aquarium.
