EVA Report – February 12th

Crew 240 EVA Report 12Feb2022

EVA # 13

Author: Maxime Jalabert

Purpose of EVA: 3D Mapping, drone shots of the EVA area, and changing batteries for experiments.

Start time: 9:35

End time: 13:20

Narrative: This EVA was surely one of the best for us. The 3D Mapping went well (approx. 30 mins) and we took some drone shots of the area while we were on the crest (see photos). There were a lot of martians with human shapes on the road but we avoided any contact.

I noticed that the battery of Perseverance was running out quite quickly compared to Spirit and Curiosity last time, so if we need to go to an other position that far from the station we will surely use Spirit and Curiosity.
