This is a complex and challenging project. Many parts of the work are at the cutting edge of science, technology or logistic capabilities. Each of these problems must be successfully overcome for complete success. The sequence of separate project elements is:

Drilling apparatus
Drilling apparatus

Drill, Drill, Drill

We’ll probably learn a lot that first major season and return a year older and wiser for another set of instrument deployment. Each requires a hole and we’ll use the same system.
