Journalist Report – April 23rd

Today was our second simulation day. We woke up at 7:30 am and we had breakfast at 8:00. Yesterday, Carl made jam, we ate it, it was delicious. He tried to do choco pasta but for me it was a failure but the rest of the crew really appreciated it. A part of the crew had to go in EVA, but they had a problem with the battery of one of the rovers. The EVA was reported to afternoon.

At 9 am, each of us worked on his experience. Eleonore and Maxime did pictures of the sun with the solar telescope.

At 12 am, Chloé and Carl prepared the lunch. We ate quinoa with beans and corn. After meal, we discussed about Nathan’s experience and his martian constitution. We spoke about the political regime to introduce on Mars.

At 2pm, Eléonore and Maxime baked bread and today it was a success. Julien and Chloé cooked an apple cake, it smells tasty. After that, Maxime, Benjamin, Eléonore and Nathan went to EVA. The rover Opportunity had a battery problem. We had to give up it on the road.

At 6 pm, we prepared the Cap Com. Each of us is working on his report and is going to send it between 7 to 9 pm. After the Cap Com, we will eat a “Gratin dauphinois” with beschamel sauce and pork sausages or lentils for vegetarians. And we will eat the apple cake for dessert.

Like usual, we will do a crew meeting to speak about the day.
