Sol Summary – January 16th

Crew 203 Sol Summary Report 16-Jan-2019

Sol: 4

Summary Title: White Mars, Red Mars, muddy Mars

Author’s name: Oscar Ojeda

Mission Status: Nominal

Sol Activity Summary: I’m starting a routine of a morning complete inspection of the facilities; this lets me plan the day better. We woke up to a layer of snow outside the Hab, after breakfast, and a small workout session of three crewmembers, we proceeded to remove the snow from the Hab areas covered by it.

After that, each crewmember started working on their respective projects, getting everything ready for an exciting rest of mission filled with science, and probably also a little bit of fun. We had a vegetarian lunch, a nod to our XO, and kept working. We’ve still had time to laugh and bond.

A light dinner and an early sleep will close the day, and be the preamble for what’s to come.

Look Ahead Plan: Science is looking good. Specific and realistic goals for each project have been set. We’ll have our first scientific EVA.

Anomalies in work: None

Weather: Very cloudy in the morning (Stratocumulus), Stratos in the afternoon, and cirrus in the early evening, with a sunny sunset. No snow nor precipitations, and low to no wind.

Crew Physical Status: In good health…! (and well fed)

EVA: none

Reports to be filed: Sol Summary, Operations Report, Greenhab Report, Journalist Report, HSO report, EVA Request.

Support Requested: If you can adjust the settings for time to pass slower so we can stay on Mars forever, it would be awesome…!
