Crew 236 Sol Summary Report 20-DEC-2021

Sol: 1

Summary Title: Living Martian

Author’s name: Kasey Hilton

Mission Status: Nominal, sim started this morning

Sol Activity Summary: Today was the first day of simulation. After our first Martian breakfast, we headed to the lower deck of the Hab to prepare for the two training EVA to Marble Ritual. While part of the crew was on EVA, ENG had the amazing opportunity to practice emptying the toilet tank! We settled down this evening to discover a little more about each other over dinner (like the fact that everyone else in the crew puts the toilet paper roll facing the wrong way).

Look Ahead Plan: Tomorrow will be spent in the Hab working on research and outreach projects inside. More EVA are planned in the following days.

Anomalies in work: None

Weather: Sunny and clear all day, high in the upper 30s.

Crew Physical Status: Crew Scientist accidentally inhaled a whole Thai pepper during dinner, but besides that everyone is still feeling bright eyed and bushy tailed.

EVA: We had two EVA today to train the crew. Both went to Marble Ritual and the nearby hills. All members of the crew felt confident and comfortable with both EVA attire and protocol after.

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

Support Requested: None
