Sol Summary – January 22nd

Sol: 10 (I can´t believe how fast time passes)

Summary Title: Greetings Martians, we come in peace

Author’s name: Oscar Ojeda

Mission Status: Nominal

Sol Activity Summary: The day began with the long expected visit of Sole Moller and Noel Spirandelli, Journalist and Photographer respectively, who came to document our life on the red planet. We had breakfast before they arrived, greeted them with some coffee and then we began a tour of the station. We then got ready for a short EVA, that took us to a wonderful location, really close to the hab, the Hab Ridge, (So, if you are reading this, I STRONGLY recommend to go there in one of the EVAs). We spend our time doing some recognition of the zone, telling them about the science that is done, and keeping up with our lives on the station. We had a martian lunch with them, and after finishing what was left of the station to be seen, they returned to Earth, and we returned to our mission. We’ll hopefully have at last the movie night Morpheus hasn’t let us have.

Look Ahead Plan: We’re expecting to review some unexpected results on some experiments, to continue with the science, and to do more EVAs to the amazing places we are surrounded by. Entering the 4th quart of the mission, our minds are starting to return home, just a bit ahead of us.
