Crew 211 – UCL to Mars
Submitted by Science Officer Maxime Bernard
Commander Carl Dahlqvist
After long late hours yesterday, our commander finally managed to make his core system work and everything is now nominal.
At the moment, he is starting his test phase with the main module and two secondary modules.
XO Simon Collignon
The RTLS (real time location system) is now working fine and he will be testing it tomorrow during an EVA.
HSO Benjamin Flasse
This morning Benjamin gathered the data from the sleep monitoring he did on Julien.
Right after that, he measured everybody’s weight, tension and brain awakeness.
In addition to that, he took measures like fat density,bone quality and water repartition intra/extra cellular using Biody Xpert like every morning.
Crew Astronomer Eleonore Lieffrig
Our Astronomer just located the quasar 3C237 on the pictures she took with the remote telescope.
She also finished the theoretical part of her work and made headway in her colloidal tracking algorithm.
Crew Engineer Julien Amalaberque
Our Engineer integrated the accelerometer and the gyroscope in his location computation in order to make it more accurate.
Crew Biologist Chloé Peduzzi
She placed her Petri dishes in the incubator and is monitoring it constantly to make sure no contamination occurred.
So far, everything seems nominal.
In the meantime, she is measuring the pH level of her Spirulina cultures.
It is increasing which is what she was expecting.
Crew Journalist Nathan Pechon
We finished to talk about the fundamental rights, freedom of speech and anti-discrimination.
The debate are still very lively and the opinions are diversified.
Crew Scientist Maxime Bernard
Keeps taking data while changing experiment conditions to find where his problem could come from.
