HabCar used and why, where? No

CrewCar used and why, where? Yes, to town. The car has power steering fluid above the fill line but I don’t know what the other marks are on the dipstick so I haven’t added any. Car continues to intermittently lose power steering and still has the noise in what I think is the front driver’s side. I did learn that power steering fluid is clear and can get old, so I ordered a pump to change it before I add any.

Luna used and why, where? No, waiting until next weekend to work on tire pressure due to crew in sim

Campus wide inspection, if action taken, what and why? Nothing to report

Summary of general operations: Nothing to report

Summary of internet: Nothing to report

Summary of suits and radios: This season, due to COVID, we gave each crewmember a Ziploc baggie with a cleaning cloth and headset for the radios and throughout the season we only lost two older headsets due to non-function. In past years, when the crew used whatever headset they wanted, we replaced at least a dozen headsets each season. In addition, we also had to replace radios and this season, even though none of them were new, we have not had to replace a single radio!

Summary of Hab operations: Nothing to report

Summary of Outpost operations: I have the new pump and hose and I will install it in the water tank sometime this week. Currently I am pumping water directly out of the HabCar tank. I replaced some of the fence but am still working on it. I would like to find a better way to hold the fence up where the hardpan stops the t-posts before they are sturdy enough for the panels.
