EVA Report – April 29th

EVA report #8

Date: 29 April 2019 from 9:00 to 12:00 am. But as the PBS crew was there, it was delayed from 10:h30 to 12:30 am.

The purpose of EVA was Mars exploration and collection of soil samples in order to grow plants in a Martian environment for the biologist (Chloé Peduzzi) experiment, but also to show to the PBS team a glimpse of a typical EVA.

Destination: Latitude: 4248000, longitude: 519000 (UTM NAD27 CONUS)

EVA Participants: Chloé Peduzzi (commander of the EVA), Benjamin Flasse (medical officer), Eléonore Lieffrig, Nathan Pechon, Lys Adeola (PBS host)

Roads and routes per MDRS Map: Cow Dung Road 0110 south direction for about 1.5 miles.

Mode of travel: Driving and hiking with Spirit and Curiosity (and PBS’s car).

Narrative : After an immersive suit of for Lys, we headed off towards our destination with Spirit, Curiosity and the PBS’s car and drone following us. We managed to take a walk in the planned area, and the EVA commander Chloé Pedduzi harvested some soil samples. After climbing a small hill, we discovered a beautiful Mars-like view. Both the PBS team and us were amazed!

We all hiked in this beautiful landscape and found what seems to be a cavity, we thought that we had just found a shelter ! But after a better and closer looked, we discovered that it was just a small and not big enough cavity.
