Summary Title: Fixing Internet and aerial delivery delays
Mission Status: Several technical problems prevent us to start the simulation
Sol Activity Summary:
The Crew Engineer and the Crew Commander started in the morning to fix the Hab’s Internet Connection: it has been a success since we identified that the issue was due to the rotation in the vertical axis of the parable. This rotation varied of a few degrees because of lots of gusts of wind. We then fixed this issue by adding a fastening system with ropes. The rest of the day was dedicated to discover the surrounding areas with ATV’s and rovers to have a better idea of the relief. We also started physical tests (known as the “bip test”) and other physical exercises outside in the framework of the experiment of our physiotherapist. Finally, we passed few hours to fix the aerial delivery delays by calling several customer services. We got the confirmation that our packages will be finally delivered tomorrow at 10 am.
Look Ahead Plan: Internet connection has been fixed and the delivery of our packages should coming tomorrow, we then plan to start the simulation tonight at 6 pm although two of our crew members will have to break the sim tomorrow morning to get our aerial delivery.
Anomalies in work: The technical assistance of HughesNet should still come to install a better fastening system for the parable since our solution is not robust against strong winds.
Weather: The weather was cleared and the sun predominant.
Crew Physical Status: Perfect health
EVA: No EVA
