Crew 240 EVA Report 05Feb2022
EVA # 6
Author: Maxime Jalabert
Purpose of EVA:
– Taking pictures around the station of possible small cracks or impacts for an outreach mission about the usefulness of 3D printing
– Changing batteries on LOAC experiment
– Exploring the Candor Chasma area
Start time: 10:09
End time: 12:53
Narrative: We took pictures and measurements of small impacts caused by wear and tear around the station, which went rather quicky. Battery change went quickly. We moved on to the crossing between Cow Dung Road and Stream Bed connector, but before reaching it spotted human activity in the area, and decided to turn around and park near Pooh’s Corner – this didn’t slow us down much. We then advanced by foot into Candor Chasma, where exploration went well, and return occurred without issue as well.
