Mission Support,

Greetings from Mars!!! After a very long journey we finally arrived to Mars yesterday, where we spent some quality time with the previous crew. Today is our first day managing everything by ourselves, we awoke early at 06:30 for the farewell of crew 186. We are so excited to be in Mars, we started our day talking about the rules and the schedules that we are going to follow during this awesome experience. Then we settle down in our home. One of the surprise of the day was the moment when we opened the food suppliers and found food from Russian Space Food Laboratory… Thank you so much for it!

For lunch Oscar cooked us tuna salad and potato… our first lunch in Mars!!! By the afternoon, Dr. Ruppert explain us in detail the protocols that we have to follow and we had our EVA’s training with her. Later, we started to plan the following EVAs.

Look Ahead Plan:

Dr. Ruppert will tell us the final part of the protocols of the simulation in the morning. Later we are going to do 2 EVAs in order to assets the performance of the crew with in suits operations. It’s almost some hours more and we are going to know the feeling of walking and be a part of expedition in Mars.

Anomalies in work:

We suspect that there is a leak in the toilet. The water level’s start to increasing little by little but then it works normal again. We hope it continuing working in a good way.
