Summary: The sixth EVA was to collect the rock samples from the Sedimentary outcrops. The sky was cloudy and the wind speed was pretty high when we started the EVA. We reached the Sedimentary outcrops where we found basalt amidst conglomerates, breccia and sandstone. We moved on to the second location, where we found sandstones as expected. Later, we climbed a hill ahead of the reservoir dam and we found a beautiful view of the martian landscape. The wind speed was around 55mph and one of the crew member was feeling uneasy, hence we decided to cut short the EVA and reached the Hab.
