The crew has been rotating though various crew roles (engineer, scientist, executive officer). I’m currently the XO so that puts me in charge of checking in with mission support a few times a day and general scheduling/logistics stuff. This afternoon one of my tasks was updating the toilet schedule for the second half of the mission. The bathroom that you are assigned to rotates as does the person in charge of turning the compost and cleaning the bathroom. Anyway I had the schedule printed out and was ready to go put them up in the bathrooms but I couldn’t find the scotch tape dispenser. Rather than spend more time looking for the tape dispenser or perhaps most logically using a pair of scissors I decided to 3D print one instead. The magic of the internet means that often times for something fairly generic like this someone has already created the design and all you have to do is download it and print it out. So 20 minutes of printing and a couple minutes of sanding later here I am with a brand new scotch tape dispenser. Not sure I can say it was time well spent but it was more fun than scissors.
