Narrative: we held a ceremony for the dead crops and while we were not sure what religion plants typically follow, and we were unable to ask them as they are currently dead we are confident that the great garden in the sky (or perhaps in the ground) will receive them and they shall enjoy endless sunshine filled with an abundance of rain and miracle grow. Fare well Mars crops. We think of you often…

This concludes the mission of crew 195. We have suffered many a crisis and the crew has weathered them bravely. We’ve been down but not out, beaten but not broken, Spurned but never scorned, cloudy but not stormy, free but not clear, and many other things. In the end, this crew has handled the rigors of our cruel mistress mars well and looks forward to our return to earth having been enriched by the experience and our lives changed permanently and forever.

EVA Report

EVA 5

The crew set out to the nearby site they’ve dubbed the “martian graveyard” to search for signs of ancient life. Unfortunately they were yet again beset by crisis when crew members became incapacitated in the simulation. The crew expertly handled the situation as they have many times before and discussed the management and events afterwards with a fantastic debrief. This crew’s final EVA was executed with expert ability and demonstrated their command of the complex material they learned during this course.

Journalist Report – May 24th

24.MAY.18

Today the crew awoke to the typical breakfast and morning briefings of the day. A PR crew joined us from a neighboring habitat to film some promotional material for mission control. The crew successfully set out on their EVA and the film crew recorded aspects of habitat life and EVA operations. Unfortunately disaster befell the crew of MDRS 195 yet again. The EVA had to be aborted after an emergency call was received. The crew expertly managed the crisis and recovered all crew members and vehicles before true disaster fell. We were fortunate to have the assistance of our PR crew to help manage the disaster. But all crew remain alive so we are looking forward to tomorrow’s mission, and we remain optimistic that perhaps tomorrow our crew will escape unscathed….
