We wait for several Earth days through the lunar night.

Uncle uses the time to make notes and maps and measurements about everything. Finally the sun begins to rise.

The rocks warm up, melting any ice. The frozen ground beneath us turns to mud and the space craft starts to slide into the crater! What if we sink under the mud? We'd have no way of getting out!

Should we open the blinds and leave the surface? Or should we wait and see what happens? Or do something else?
