Blue Crew 192’s first day of their mission was an exciting and hectic one. We started our mission taking a lot of photos and learning how to properly use our Martian vehicles and spacesuits. The crew got the hang of using the Martian vehicles quickly, including the two of our five crew members who had never previously driven ATVs.
The crew also continued experimenting with cooking the dehydrated food we were supplied for the mission, which turned out to be a bit more difficult than expected. But all the same, after some adjusting and improvisation with powdered butter, we enjoyed some pancakes for breakfast.
Being on a Martian mission has already proven to be a constant learning experience. Every action that we take, including seemingly simple tasks, usually ends with a group discussion about how the experience went, what worked and what didn’t, and what we should do differently next time.
We look forward to continuing our mission tomorrow.
