Sol Summary – December 7th

Sol: 11

Summary Title: Departure

Author’s name: Enkhtuvshin “Dono” Doyodkhuu

Mission Status: Completed

Sol Activity Summary: After a quick game night yesterday, the crew went to bed early and the sol started promptly at 7 AM. We had a couscous soup for breakfast, exercised, meditated, and headed out for our last EVA. We walked about 500m north of Hab and did photo shooting, portraits, and drone footage. Alas, this marked the end of our simulation.

We invited the on-site managers—Ben and Jewels—for lunch and got straight to working on reports and cleaning afterwards. Our plan tonight is to finish our final mission summary and cleaning, record a final crew log to be shared amongst the MARS-V members club, and run a comedy night. Tomorrow, we will receive the Netflix documentary crew on station and show them around. We will then complete the final check-out list in the evening, finish cleaning, and move out first thing in the morning.

This will be our final sol summary. It is bittersweet to have to say goodbye to Mars, but there is still much work to be done on Earth to support the next generation Martians, so that humankind may become multiplanetary species. Hopefully Earth will welcome us with open hands.

Onwards and upwards!
