Sol: 0

Summary Title: The Final Approach

Author's name: Cesare Guariniello

Mission Status: everything is great!

Sol Activity Summary: our approach trajectory is getting us closer and closer to Mars. After the final review of procedures, tomorrow we will have our first Sol on Mars. Today we reached the habitat that will be our home for the next two weeks and began familiarizing with it and learning about GreenHab operations. The crew is a little tired from the long travel, yet excited about the adventure ahead. After arriving at MDRS, we took a quiz that tested our theoretical knowledge of safety and operational rules, before filling half of the water tank for our rotation. The evening ended with the traditional crew dinner at Stan's before our daily communication window.

Look ahead plan: tomorrow we will complete our training, with operations, EVA, flight suits, and mission initial briefing.

Anomalies in work: the lack of an outgoing crew required us to adapt to the situation with the help of the assistant program directors. No anomalies though

Weather: cloudy, around 34 degrees

Crew physical status: healthy and recovering from travel

EVA: none

Reports to be filed: sol summary, commander report, operations report, greenhab report

Support Requested: none
