Notes and Comments:
In the morning we go to receive the new deimos. After that, as you know we started the EVA session. Three hours after, our classmates did not appear. The fact is that the ATV did not work before they return to the Hab. In that way, Atila stayed in the middle of desert with the ATV, waiting for us. Any deimos were charged. So, we had to take the car, buy gasoline, and we went as fast as we could for Atila.  In that emergency, because everyone was worry for Atila, we broke the simulation.

I think that this experience join us as a group.

Summary of GreenHab operations:

We are cleaning and organizing this area. It is a disaster, but we are working on it.

Summary of ScienceDome operations:

We are using the lamps of the Hab, for the laboratory.

Summary of health and safety issues:

Atila is having little headache. We are taking care of him.

Questions, concerns and requests to Mission Support:

I have a doubt, which is the minimum limit for the static water tank?

We need gasoline for the ATV’S, please. URGENT

Notes and Comments:
We made bread finally,  it was tasty and we liked it too much.  From another hand, the last night was a little hot. As a result, since tonight we are going to lower the temperature of the heater.
Summary of Hab operations:

We receive the new radios today in the morning.  Also, according to the instructions they were installed in the desk of radios and a couple in the laboratory.  We proved the six radios and they are fine. All of them load and we can hear clearly the messages.   According your question about how many the radios remain are operational, we had 5 remained radios working each one with their own earbud.  In addition, we had three more earbuds; one of them is not working.

According to the toilet, I did what you wrote me almost exactly. The thing is that I did not use the deodorizer pack.  I am sorry for that. I thought that with the digester will be enough.  I am going to empty the toilet tomorrow again, so, I will use the deodorizer pack.

Summary of GreenHab operations:

I will remember that the heater is automatically. Thanks mission support.

Also, inside the greenhab, there is a big blue tub. What is that?

Summary of ScienceDome operations:

We got all the cords off the middle table and put them against the wall.  We worked today until 6:30pm, and there was not light. Therefore, it is necessary the lamps.

Summary of health and safety issues:

While we were trying to cook the lunch my classmate burned his finger. I t was a little little burn. Thanks for the first aid kit, it help us in the situation.

Questions, concerns and requests to Mission Support:

I have a doubt, which is the minimum limit for the static water tank?

We need gasoline for the ATV’S, please.

Notes and Comments:
Today we had an advance in the topic about recycling water. The number of gallons of water that we used today is less than the gallons of water used yesterday. And, I know that tomorrow is going to be better.
Summary of Hab operations:

We put the jumper cables delivered on the lower shelf in the EVA room. Also, we fixed the radios because some of them did not have a good sound. In addition, tomorrow we are going to receive new communication radios.

Summary of GreenHab operations:

We are going to heat the greenhouse tomorrow

Summary of ScienceDome operations:

We installed the autoclave perfectly. Even, it has already been used once without any difficulty. At the same time, tomorrow we are going to receive a new shop vac.

Summary of health and safety issues:

The HOS officer needs two fire alarms for the science dome and for the greenhouse.

Questions, concerns and requests to Mission Support:

We need you to repair the heater water, since it still does not work.

For the next week at the most on Monday, we are going to need water.

I have a doubt, which is the minimum limit for the propane tank and the diesel tank?

Where does the used water go?

Notes and Comments:
Last night was a little cold, we are having problem with the heater., because when we turn it on, it heats, but few hours later the air is cold again. So, we have to turn it off and then turn it on again to keep us warm. Do you know a solution for this problem?

At the same time, we did an EVA session today. The blue moto is not working. In that way, we did the EVA session with the deimo and the red moto. We do not had any problems with these vehicles. In contrast, we had problems with the radios. All radios are working, however, approximately 2.5 km far from the Hab, we could not had any communication with the Hab. We do not know why that is. So, please send us the ratio of distance in which we could keep the communication.

Tomorrow we are going to use the solar.

Refit Crew: Dr.Shannon Rupert, Kay Radzik Warren, Kevin Seidler, John
Lillquist, and John Stone

******************************************************************
STATUS OF HAB:
Water: Full tank, 500 gallons
Water on trailer: Both tanks empty
Diesel for generator: 75%
Solar Power: 100% SOC
Generator: on from 4 pm.  Last person up tonight will shut it off.
Propane: big tank = 58%, small tank = 40%
Fuel for ATV’s (Jerry Cans): All gas unusable. DO NOT USE FUEL WITH
ETHANOL IN IT
Fuel for Hab Car: Full tank, new battery

******************************************************************
Tasks done today:
1) GreenHab: grow lights installed; shade cloth installed on south
wall; +/- 2 dozen pots planted and watered.
2) Toilet tank flushed out.
3) Tunnel between GreenHab and intersection to Science Lab removed and replaced.
4) Generator jump started, oil was topped off, and it is in working condition.
5) Electrical receptacles checked, and we found that the receptacles
in the toilet, shower room, and alcove in front are not working. Lack
of GFCI outlets in wet areas noted.
6) Replacement lid for vent/skylight fabricated.
7) Porthole in south airlock exterior door had fallen out due to
extreme wind conditions (and the fact that it was just sitting in the
opening and not fastened mechanically, just siliconed), but was
undamaged. So it was put back in with carabiners slotted through holes
on each side so that it won’t fall out again.

******************************************************************
Tasks that need to be done:
A. Water heater is still not working. Per Curtis, it needs to be fully
replaced. Installation expected soon.
B. Need more water in spare tanks.
