EVA # 7
Author: David Mateus
Purpose of EVA: Test search and rescue protocol in a canyon. And explore the Canyon.
Start time: 9:00 pm
End time: 11:10 pm
Following the route, we drove from the HAB to Cowboy Corner. We parked at that point and walked towards the canyon. Once inside the canyon, we waited for our crew members from the other team who were at the HAB and awaited the arrival of the drone to carry out the search and rescue simulation. It was not possible to fly the drone to the Canyon due to the winds. The crew returned safely to the Hab.
