Sol Activity Summary: In the morning we did an EVA to change the batteries of the atmospheric experiments. Nicolas and Valentine tried to make contact with Toulouse, in France (simulating a different Mars settlement) but it failed, they are going to try again in a few days.

For lunch, we cooked soup with some of the cabbage of our last harvest. It warmed up the crew members which was quite necessary as the day was very cold. Just after lunch, Shannon retrained us about EVAs and the philosophy of the sim. We were very grateful to have feedback: it will help us live the Martian experience better. We then finished the Mars puzzle together, which was quite a nice cohesion activity.

In the afternoon, we worked on our EVA requests to make them precise. Some of us went through human factors experiments. Two of the crew members used the RAM and its tools to do some repair work.
