EVA #4

Author: Simon Collignon

Purpose of EVA: Explore the Special Region in order to explore and search for ancient martian life.
Start time: 09:00 am
End time: 11:00 am

Narrative: The aim of this EVA was to explore the Special Region as said in the purpose section of this EVA report. Unfortunately, the rover SPIRIT was discharging too fast, the battery’s autonomy was not high enough to reach the Special Region. Therefore, we decided to stop on Cow Dung Road at the intersection with Galileo Road 1104. After a short exchange with the Hab, we decided to take Galileo road and explore the area delimited by Cow Dung Road, Galileo Road, Cactus Road and Stream Bed Connector. Sadly, there were no sign of ancient Martian on this area. Next time we’ll try to reach Special Region
