Sol Activity Summary: After a quick breakfast, the commander welcomed the PBS team in spacesuit outside of the Hab. We then made a tour of the MDRS campus with the TV crew, each member of the UCL to Mars team presenting part of the infrastructures and discussing his/her experiment. Half of the crew left then for an EVA with Liz Adeola to Cow Dung Road between the Robert’s Rock Garden and Zurbin’s head. The EVA team got back at noon and we all had a nice lunch together. The crew commander and the crew astronomer were then interviewed for about one hour. All the crew members went then back to work once the TV crew left the campus.
