Mike's Rover Diary Day 1 2 3

Day Two

By the end of day two I’ve managed to show that you can remove the dyes from different food colourings using this process and these adsorbents, so I’m confident it’ll work when I come to purify Ellen’s and Iain’s water samples. Only problem is that they’ve not been very successful in collecting any samples at all so far. Looks like it’s going to be a last-minute rush to get my part of the challenge completed, which is often the case when you’re relying on someone else to provide the raw materials for your contribution. Guess I’ll just have to sit it out and wait… There's little else I can do.
