EVA #15

18 April 2018 – Sol 10

Crew Members: Joe Dituri, Andreea Radulescu

Objectives: Take Lowell Rd till we got to the base of 1106. We the proceeded south and walked the ridge line until the end.

Operations:
1400-1800

Narrative: This is absolutely the most beautiful part of the exploration. We walked to the end of the ridge…made our way down to the basin…Then proceeded down the water spill way which was another 30-50 feet down. Proceeding south we followed the water spillway until it turned almost due west…then proceeded north and then proceeded NW up the water spillway. We basically encircled Murphy’s Canyon as marked on the map in total. Almost 5 miles of hiking and several hundred foot change in elevation.

Crew members: Richard Blakeman, Ashok Narayanamoorthi

Objectives:
Conduct an exploratory reconnaissance of 1101 weather permitting. Additionally, continue anti-fogging experiments under varying exertions.

Operations:
0730-1030

Narrative: We proceeded through the route 1101 and were cautiously treading the path in the ATV. We went past the ridges all the way to the fence. Enroute hiked over the ridges and did coms check across the line of sight. Evaluated ATV riding in spacesuit with incremental difficulty in driving.

EVA #13

17 April 2018 – Sol 8

Crew Members: Joe Dituri, Andreea Radulescu

Objectives: To explore the east ridge near white moon road 1572 and to the east. There was some indication that part of our science projects crashed there. Also we will be testing two piece vs. one piece suits for longer duration missions.

Operations:
1500-1800

Narrative: We proceeded north on Lowell but did not see a sign for 1572….We missed it but turned around and found what we think was 1572. Explored the east side and this is the most red section similar to what Mars may look like. Great area. We also explored the area slightly south of that road and east. Need to explore north of that road because it gets more dramatic there.
