Sol Summary – December 22nd

Crew 236 Sol Summary Report 22-DEC-2021

Sol: 3

Summary Title: Naps on Mars?

Author’s name: Kasey Hilton

Mission Status: Nominal

Sol Activity Summary: Life on Mars? *Cue David Bowie* We don’t know. Naps on Mars? Absolutely. The crew had an early wake-up and a quick breakfast before heading out to on EVA.

Due to a malfunction in comms, the EVA was cut short. The afternoon was spent relaxing and recharging, with 5 out of the 7 crew members taking naps. A bit of work was squeezed in before ending the evening with jambalaya and card games.

Look Ahead Plan: Tomorrow, Cesare (XO), Ben (JOU), Tyler (SCI), and Pavi (ENG) will go on a second EVA. The remaining crew members will stay at the Hab and continue to work on research and outreach.

Weather: Partly overcast, temperature in the 30s.

Crew Physical Status: A resounding “WOOHOO!” followed by a few thumbs up from the crew. Everyone is still in good health and spirits.

EVA: Today’s EVA ended earlier than planned due to a radio malfunction that caused a crew member to lose comms. Tomorrow the same EVA will be attempted again in order to complete the desired research.

Reports to be filed: Operations Report, GreenHab Report, EVA Request, EVA Report, Health and Safety Report, Sol Summary, and Journalist Report (with photos), Astronomy Report

Support Requested: Any information about the James Webb launch would be great (if it’s been delayed further, when is the launch scheduled for, etc.)
