Crew 265 Sol Summary
Summary Title: Descent into Candor Chasma
Author’s Name: Marc Levesque, Crew Commander
Mission Status: Nominal
Sol Activity Summary:
The crew completed another successful communications project test during an EVA deep in Candor Chasma. Commander Levesque with crew members Blanco and Licea conducted several communications checks with the Hab on a project VHF radio, while having no contact on an MDRS UHF radio channel. Walking down the sinuous canyon, they were awed by the sculptured walls shaped long ago by running water, similar to what scientists believed occurred on Mars eons ago. Along with Lith Canyon, Candor Chasma provides a great Mars analog setting for MDRS crews. Back at the Hab, video editing continued for the social media project.
Look Ahead Plan: One EVA is planned for tomorrow and continued activity on mission projects.
