Today, Crew 208 continued 3D printing in the Hab, including making a wonderful 3D printed drone map of MDRS prepared by GHO!

ENG + HSO observed many fossil specimens during their walking EVA this AM.

Crew ENG + HSO each exercised for 1 hour to generate power for our bike-powered 3D printing study.
