Crew 240 EVA Report 17Feb2022

EVA # 18

Author: Pierre Fabre

Purpose of EVA: Standard battery replacement for our atmospheric experiments. Following 3D mapping of the area near Hab Ridge a little North of North Ridge, two EVAs will be performed to check the performance of crew members based on the use of these 3D maps for EVA prep to ascend the mapped area.

Start time: 9:50

End time: 11:43

Narrative: Battery replacements went well as usual, and then the EVA team proceeded to attempt a climb of Hab Ridge as part of an experiment to assess the value of 3D mapping to EVA preparation. Climb went well, and team returned early after all objectives had been met.
