Sol Summary – November 25th

Sol 3 Summary Report

November 25, 2017

Julielynn Wong, Crew 183 Mission Commander

Summary Title: A day of self-replicating Star Trek Replicators, bike-powered 3D printing, and 3D scanning geological artifacts at MDRS.

Mission Status: Nominal.

Sol Activity Summary:
To kick off our first day in simulation, all Crew 183 members were issued their official Medical Makers stickers.

Our HSO tested the functionality and usability of 3D4MD’s humanitarian 3D printing system (H3DPS-LM) with our Crew Geographer, who is a 3D printing novice. The security features of 3D4MD’s H3DPS-LM — which meets U.S. FDA guidelines for medical software cybersecurity — are functioning.

Today we printed over sixteen 3D4MD digital catalog items (including medical supplies and spare parts for our 3D printer) using flexible, rigid and biodegradable plastic filament.

Our EVA team collected rock specimens for 3D scanning in the MDRS lab for future study and education outreach.

Crew 183 underwent our Medical Makers #UAVs4Good drone training program for safe flight operations with our DJI Mavic Pro drone.

Our crew is now using our cycling ergometer system to follow the exercise countermeasures schedule for astronauts onboard the ISS and to power our humanitarian 3D printing systems. Power generation data was collected non-invasively during training that crew members would have undertaken if no experiment existed.

Look Ahead Plan: Preparing for sim and EVA on Sol 4.

Anomalies in work: None.

Weather: Calm, sunny and warm.

Crew Physical Status: Healthy

EVA: Crew Astronomer, Crew Engineer, and HSO participated in an EVA led by our Crew Geologist.
