Crew 205 Sol Summary Report 23- FEB – 2019

Sol: 13

Summary Title: Bienvenus à MDRS!

Author’s name: Natalia Larrea

Mission Status: Nominal

Sol Activity Summary: We woke up knowing that it would be our last morning on Mars. Following some last cleaning around the Hab, the crew took the opportunity of being out of sim to do some hiking around North Bridge. Upon our return, we met Crew 206 coming directly from Supaero (France). They will be taking over the operations here after our departure tomorrow. We spent the afternoon training them on all details about the “Martian life” and took the usual official crew pictures. At night we have the chance to enjoy delicious hamburgers together in Hanksville.

Tomorrow we will start our “re-entry back to Earth”. After our mission on Mars, the “de-orbiting period” to get back to normal life might be challenging! Thank you “Red Planet” for two demanding, enjoyable, and unforgettable weeks here…

Look Ahead Plan: Stay tuned for the new stories for Crew 206, they have very exciting research projects coming up!
