Summary Title : Last days on Mars

Author : Jeremy Auclair

Mission Status : All nominal

Sol Activity Summary : In two days we are going to break the simulation
and wrap up all our experiments, it will be the end of a great
adventure. We are feeling this, everything is going faster, days are
flying by. We are savouring these last days. This morning went fine,
although we had to shorten our EVA. While we were exploring, and after
the weather station maintenance, the wind started increasing greatly, to
the point where we hard a hard time hearing ourselves in the radio and
we were being pushed around. We headed straight back to the rovers and
drove back to the Hab. Nothing bad happened. The wind has been blowing
strong since then. The weather station is still up. This afternoon was
quite busy : the TELEOP session went fine and due to planning
constraints we all had to watch VR videos, which took some time. All our
experiments are going fine, although the crew is being less attentive to
water consumption measurement.

Look ahead plan : Tomorrow’s EVA will be used to test the prototype
space suit again.
