Sol 11 Crew 193 EVA Summary
Earth-Date 3MAY2018

EVAs _
There were no EVAs planned today, as we had visitors this morning that lasted into the afternoon. After they left we had some rain, which precluded any contingency EVA that we had planned.

We did have an Engineering EVA this morning, in which our CO used an ATV to make contact with the visitors from another planet.
