Narrative: Today I have had a great day, my first EVA on Mars, where I could test the necessary tools to collect Martian soil in my next EVA, after it, I did not realize that the temperature decrease, so I forgot to close the door at the afternoon, fortunately Atila did it. Also I had to repair some pieces of my project that were broken during the trip to Mars, so today I could not finish the assembly of the lysimeter.

Because of the fact that the source of water close to the greenhab is not working, I am spending a lot of time filling the watering can in the kitchen of the hab.

I hope to finish the assembly of the lysimeter and start the quinoa crop over it with the soil that we will get tomorrow at the EVA.
