Science Operations: Weather conditions prevented EV activities during the morning, so all crew underwent instruction in donning and doffing both the exploration and two piece suits. In the afternoon, EVAs were approved and two short training activities were carried out. All crew have now become familiar with the operation of both types of suits, hab egress and ingress, operations with rovers and mobility on the surface.
