Summary Title: The 51 second excitation

Author’s name: Kunal Naik (Space_Bot)

Mission Status: Nominal

Sol Activity Summary: What gives an excitation? A rover working from ~ 13000 km with live Audio/Video stream via rover will surely create one. Today was the judgment day for the child rover project. The crew woke up earlier than their assigned schedule, potato creamy soup is a good start of the day. The crew was on the run as the EVA was requested post breakfast.

SpaceBot and MarsBag carried out the walking EVA near the MDRS HAB premises. The main purpose of the EVA was to operate child rover from a remote location, India (13000 kms away). It was operated by students of Sipna College of Engineering. The demonstration was successful in exploring the Martian soil. The crew was happy as their project was a success. Still needs upgradation for sure.

Post EVA, the team discussed about the rover and Indian Mythology. Pre-Lunch, the crew members were on their assigned respective task. Lunch was prepared by CarbonFlight and SpaceBot, quite a lot food which will be used for dinner as well.

Post lunch, all crew members rested for a while. Carbon flight printed few bricks
for Martian habitat from his 3D Clay Printer a day ago and now they are dried and ready to be baked. There is a positive vibe from the Green Hab, every-day you eager to go to the GreenHab just to see the growth of the plants. The crew is still planning for some board games
post dinner.

Look Ahead Plan: The 3D clay printer has printed some bricks out of Martian soil composition which will be baked to test the inner dynamic structure and possibility to use the brick for future habitat. The End is 2 days short, the crew has scheduled the recleaning of the hab.

The sprouts and mix seeds have already started showing good results. Hoping to observe more growth.
