Sol Summary – March 15th

Sol: 26
Summary Title: A New Chapter
Author’s name: Marie Delaroche, Crew Commander
Mission Status: Nominal
Sol Activity Summary:
There was definitely a strange vibe when the Crew awoke this morning. Everything was done for the last time: taking our daily measurements, going through our last workout session… But the rest of the Sol did not go according plan. We were supposed to dismantle and retrieve the atmospheric instruments during an EVA this morning. Due to rain and snowfall, conditions were deemed unsuitable to perform this last EVA. The station was also placed in “low power” mode, as the solar panels struggled to keep up.
After finishing wrapping up our experiments, taking our last tests and writing our final reports, we broke sim at 4 PM to dismantle the atmospheric instruments. A seagull flew and circled above us as we worked, welcoming us home, as if we were back from a long journey at sea!
Look Ahead Plan:
We will complete and send the checkout list tomorrow morning. At what time can the HabCar be placed in front of the Hab so that we can start loading it? We plan to leave tomorrow at 12:00. We will fill the tank of the CrewCar in Grand Junction, park it at the Day’s Inn, and give the keys at the front desk.
