Sol Summary – Feb 10th

Crew 240 Sol Summary Report 10Feb2022

Sol: 10

Summary Title: Pretty well grounded

Author’s name: Clément Plagne

Mission Status: Nominal

Sol Activity Summary: Another day, another EVA to North Ridge, another “Hey Clément, see if you can get some pictures of us up there from the Hab!”. Talk about a picturesque place – while every picture out of the window looks awesome, I probably have to find another photographic endeavour. Besides, we’ve gotten through a first thorough test of how well our crewmembers handle the 3D maps our drones got.

Later on in the Hab, we’ve been looking at the busy part of the mission regarding our human science research, with two very time-intensive, and a little tiring, experiments scheduled on the same two days for the first time. That means everyone’s always doing something, and you can tell from the stillness in the Upper Deck.

Look Ahead Plan: Waiting expectantly for those batteries of questionnaires and computer tests to be over for the week tomorrow night. Trying to get in a big EVA to the Special Region.

Anomalies in work: Another spacesuit (2nd version) has had some issues, with the crewmember using it having little ventilation soon after leaving on EVA (no matter how they set it on the dial). Trying to find a definitive reason for it, but it just looks like the batteries are very tired from use in cold weather, and perhaps age.

Weather: Warm

Crew Physical Status: All fine

EVA: One, nominal besides battery issues.

Reports to be filed: Sol Summary, EVA Report, EVA Request, HSO Report, Operations Report, Journalist Report, Crew Pictures, Astronomy Report

Support Requested: We just wanted to make sure when water would be replenished. We should be right on the money with our water management if it comes on Saturday, Sunday should be fine too.
