Crew 215 Sol Summary Report 22-NOV-2019
Summary Title: Final Day on Mars
Author’s name: Andrew Wheeler
Mission Status: Active
Sol Activity Summary: Today we spent our time cleaning and packing in preparation for
our departure and the arrival of Crew 216. Data was sorted and archived, experimental
equipment was dismantled, cleaned and stored and personal items were packed. The last
unused samples were removed from the Science dome, ready to be returned to their
collection locations. After cleaning, it was secured. Likewise, in the Green Hab,
plants were watered and equipment packed away. The hab was cleaned and readied for the
next green thumb to apply tender loving care to the growing crop. The RAM was secured
whilst, in the main hab, the business of living went on. Meals were prepared and
consumed, though with a touch of sadness. This has been an fantastic experience in a
wonderful facility in an amazing environment and it will be difficult to leave. But
leave we must and we will warmly greet the next rotation when they arrive tomorrow.
Look Ahead Plan: Departure from the hab for Crew 215 and welcome to MDRS for Crew 216.
