Crew 215 Sol Summary Report 15-NOV-2019
Summary Title: Practice Rescue Day
Author’s name: Andrew Wheeler
Mission Status: Active
Sol Activity Summary: Another early departure EVA for this sol had again returning to
the micrometeorite sample grid in the stream wash at MM5 (518462E 4248949N). We
collected another 24 samples before returning to the hab for lunch. 64% of the plots
have now been sampled. With only 36 samples to go, we will have completed the second of
the micrometeorite sampling grids and allow flux rate comparisons to be made between
undisturbed surfaces and accumulation surfaces. The afternoon was spent processing the
micrometeorite grid samples and grinding gypsum for cement experimentation. An
emergency response simulation was carried out at 1700 in which an EVA was carried out
to retrieve an unresponsive Marstronaut. This was successfully carried out by 1725.
Following an extensive debrief, dinner was very welcome as adrenaline levels returned
Look Ahead Plan: Planning an EVA to MM5 (518462E 4248949N) to continue collection of
micrometeorite samples (see EVA request), continue preparing gypsum for cement
manufacture and Green Hab operations. Continue monitoring of psycho-social stressors.
