Crew 265 EVA Report 04-05-2022

EVA # 9

Author: Laude

Purpose of EVA: Social media filming by the Crew Journalist.

Start time: 0900
End time: 1140

Narrative: We made our way on foot to the base of Phobos Peak taking photos and videos along the way. Many interesting rock and sediment formations were seen with all displaying the forces of erosion likely by weather and water. We readily hiked a short way up to its southern slope and stopped at a nice nearly flat overlook, but could not view MDRS.

We then descended to the base and walked partway around the base looking for another perch. Finding none, we rehiked up to the previous overlook where Treadwell continued her work. We stayed there for about 40 minutes until she got everything she could think of and several minutes longer as Laude was reluctant to leave such an awesome view and time was on our side.

Finally, we made good speed and arrived at the hab 20 minutes early.
