Sol Summary – February 21st

Crew 205 Sol Summary Report 21- FEB – 2019

Sol: 11

Summary Title: Covered in White

Author’s name: Natalia Larrea

Mission Status: Nominal

Sol Activity Summary: Today was a quiet day. We woke up surrounded by a white Martian landscape. The snowfall from last night left us with approximately 10 cm of snow on the ground. The Martian weather has been challenging our mission during the past days but despite those challenges, we have been advancing well in our research projects.

It has been 11 days since we arrived to these lands. We can see the end of our mission rising on the horizon. As such, the crew focused today on wrapping up the different projects, start the deep cleaning of the RAM, Science Dome and GreenHab. We also started drafting our mission summary and filmed some last outreach videos. As usual, we have enjoyed a fantastic lunch prepared by our “Martian Chef de Cuisine” Hannah which mastered some home-made Martian Pizza.

Look Ahead Plan: Tomorrow we will perform a deep cleaning of the Hab to make sure everything is ready for the next crew, finish up our mission summary, take some last official pictures and start packing to come back to “Earth”.

Anomalies in work: None

Weather: Consistent snow during most of the day.

Crew Physical Status: Nominal

EVA: None

Reports to be filed: Sol Summary, Journalist Report, GreenHab Report, Operations Report, EVA request (just kidding 😉 we know it is fully covered in white outside)

Support Requested: Paper towel and Febreze spray will be largely appreciated for deep cleaning of the Hab.
