Sol Summary – February 07th

Crew 240 Sol Summary Report 07Feb2022

Sol: 7

Summary Title: Getting back in gear

Author’s name: Clément Plagne

Mission Status: Nominal

Sol Activity Summary: Following a week spent toying with the original mission planning to adjust to varying EVA times and duration, and a weekend of rest breaking the rhythm, the most important part of starting this second of three weeks is getting a strong rhythm back and sticking to the plan. With a day heavy with an EVA, several human sciences experiments to perform, 3D printing to start, and a lot more, timekeeping was of the essence.

Fortunately for us, everything went smoothly – the EVA went without an issue (and I’ve got to add, seeing crew members up on Hab Ridge from the inside is always fun), there have been massive upswings for the work of Maxime, our astronomer, who is now busier than ever, and we still managed to fit our zillion activities well enough so that our HSO could have us get a small meditation session before heading out to write reports.

Look Ahead Plan: A slightly less busy day tomorrow, with some leeway to have some more relaxing activities during the afternoon. Another crack at the North Ridge with Pierre’s updated and well processed 3D data. Finally fixing the missing piece of one of our atmospheric study experiments so we can take it out in the field at last.
