Sol activity summary:

The Hypatia I crew started their day with enthusiasm, eager to embark on their longest EVA yet. After gathering around the table for breakfast, Carla Conejo (Executive Officer & Biologist), Núria Jar (Journalist), Laia Ribas (GreenHab Officer), and Mariona Badenas-Agusti (Crew Commander & Astronomer) prepared themselves for their EVA. Today, they drove towards Brahe Highway 1572, stopping just before reaching the Martian moons. In their final destination, they flew a small drone and collected sand samples for Carla’s and Laia’s project, respectively.

The full crew gathered at lunchtime, when Cesca Cufí (Engineer) and Neus Sabaté (Mission Specialist) prepared a refreshing rice salad with beans, dehydrated chicken (or mushrooms for vegetarians), and fresh chives from the GreenHab. After lunch, the crew resumed their work on their experiments in the Science Dome, RAM, and the Hab. As always, it has been a productive day on Mars.

With only two more SOLs left before their return to Earth, the Hypatia I crew can’t help but feel a sense of nostalgia about their time on Mars and how quickly their mission is going by. Nevertheless, they remain highly motivated to complete their projects and share their findings with those who have followed their journey, both back home and beyond.
