What's with the salt shaker in the back of the pic with the guy with googles and clean suit?
Were they sucking down reubens and fries at the bench!

Am I mad? They were fully expecting ice and soil samples. Apparently no one expected cloddy samples. A 2mm entry way?! Now I'm flustered. Their little vibrator units are apparently way underpowered or needed a somewhat heated external surface to heat/help break it up. This has not gone well from the getgo. Orbiter hit by 'gamma rays' and taking out comm links. Not good at all.
