Sol Activity Summary: Today was a special day: the first day we woke up at the Hab! We spent the night together with Crew 204. The place was crowded but we had a great evening conversing and playing board games together.

We woke up full of energy and ready to prepare the final details for our mission. In the morning, we got our first pictures as a crew and proceeded execute crew handover with Crew 204. We came back to the Hab and settled in to our new home for the next two weeks. We enjoyed blueberry pancakes for breakfast, unpacked our bags, did some deep cleaning, took inventory, and loaded the water tanks.

In the afternoon, Atila and David joined us at the Hab to conduct training on mission protocols and operations. Then we split into two groups for EVA training using the rovers in the field. Finally, we practiced putting on the suits and using the earpieces.

Look Ahead Plan: Tomorrow we enter sim. We will start our new daily routine and plan to conduct our first EVAs. Stay tuned for our future reports. We have two weeks of full of exciting projects coming up! We are ready for Mars!
