Summary Title: TELEOP catch-up

Author: Jeremy Auclair

Mission Status: All nominal

Sol Activity Summary: It is getting harder and harder for me to wake up in the morning, but I still stick to the morning routine, as all of the crew does. Today is the last working day of our week, and we worked well.

The EVA went beautifully. We explored the east and west Kissing Camels ridges and took great pictures. The EVA was also meant to continue the tests of our prototype simulation space suit. The little upgrades that were made improved the suit quite a bit: it was less hard to carry, ventilation and sun protection worked better and the battery lasted more than long enough for the whole EVA.

This afternoon also saw the completion of the TELEOP second week: we managed to gather additional data to catch up on the sessions that were missed, and I haven’t encountered any additional issues with the physical rover (great difference with last year’s sessions). We ended this work week with the VR session, that also allowed us to talk about the videos we had seen, and opinions differ regarding what video was preferred.

Look ahead plan: Tomorrow will be a rest day, we will still have to
work on our rotation video and on a few experiments, but it will be
calmer than today.
