Sol Summary – December 24th

Sol: 9

Summary Title: Christmas from Mars

Author’s name: Tania Robles, Commander

Mission Status: Mission objectives are going fine; every crew member is working on each project. However today we dedicated more time to cook and clean the Hab to celebrate Christmas.

Sol Activity Summary: Last night we went to bed late because we saw The Martian movie. We woke up at 8 am and had our daily routine with breakfast and briefings. It seems that we are not losing much weight, just around 2 kilograms per person until today, Sol 9.

Two members went out to an EVA were they found life in the form on animals and a couple of humans who asked for a picture to our astronauts. After they came back, we worked in our Christmas tree (nice artistic skills, Crew!). By now we are finishing our special dinner with lasagna.

Happy Christmas up to Earth!

Look Ahead Plan: Tomorrow we will work individually in our projects but also record some videos to Mexico so we can send them on our way back to Earth. Also, we will have a 3D Printing class and have dinner with the MDRS Director.

Anomalies in work: None

Weather: Sunny

Crew Physical Status: All good.

EVA: XO and Crew Engineer went to North Pinto Hills.
