Sol Activity Summary:

Crew 207 completed their data collection for the bike-powered 3D printing study. Today we used our bike-charged battery to successfully 3D print a tongue depressor out of food-safe, biodegradable plastic and a replacement printer LCD knob out of PETG. Results are now being compiled for remote analysis and manuscript preparation.

Crew 207 continued 3D printing in the Hab today for our thoracentesis training study.

The following items were identified as useful to 3D print at MDRS:

Filament disposal box

COM continues to fulfill GHO duties. XO continues to fulfill ENG duties.

COM will revise activity schedule for Crew 208 based on timelines observed with Crew 207.
