Summary of health and safety issues:  Nothing to report

Questions, concerns and requests to Mission Support:  Nothing, thank you.

Operations Report – November 19th

Crew 182+ Operations Report 19NOV2017

SOL: n/a

Name of person filing report: Shannon Rupert

Non-nominal systems: water heater, lower deck electrical outlets, one
suit charger, generator, Hab water system, front airlock window, top
hatch

Notes: Water heater needs to be replaced. It was supposed to be
replaced two Mondays ago, but when the contractor came to do it, the
crew did not open the door

Lower deck electrical outlets: Electrician is being hired to look at this.

Suit charger: Broken by crewmember. An additional three suit chargers
were not working when the suits were delivered. Contacting NorCal
regarding replacement.

Generator failed in the night. Believed to be low oil. Will monitor.

Last night when I went into the Hab, the water pump was running
non-stop and the system was empty. After I refilled the tank to ½ and
troubleshooted, I determined that someone just ran the system dry. I
reprimed the lines and the pump began functioning normally.

The front airlock windown came out this summer, and during the refit
and again the night before last. Need to find a way to secure it.

The new top hatch is not secure in high winds. Need to find a way to secure it.

Generator— Turned off yesterday am at 8 am, turned on last night at 6
pm, failed during the night, was restarted after adding oil at 7:45
am. SOC was at 61% so I’m going to let it run all day. We need to
replace the summer blend with a winter blend and we did not use the
amount of fuel we thought we would because the generator was out of
service all summer. Note: only use the generator specific oil.

Solar— SOC was at 61% this morning. Will monitor throughout the day.

Diesel – 65%

Propane – n/a psi. Amerigas was contacted and propane was ordered.

Ethanol Free Gasoline (5 Gallon containers for ATV) – 0 gallons. Note
this should be rewritten on the template as Ethanol Free gas. This is
the only gas that should go in the ATVs. It is only available at
Stan’s Chevron. In addition, the only oil that should go in the ATVs
is an ATV specialty oil.

Water (trailer) – 0 gallons.

Water (static) – ~ 200 gallons

Trailer to Static Pump used – no

Water (loft) – Static to Loft Pump used – yes

Water Meter: n/a

Toilet tank emptied: no (at least not by me)

ATV’s Used: All ATVs except the 300 were used today. All 5 have been
serviced and repaired for the season. The 300 still needs its parking
brake repaired, parts are on order. The 350s all have new seats so
none of the machines has a ripped seat. We will be using one today.

Oil Checked: no

Atv # Fuel Used Gals: Not none. We will go get gas toady.

Tires Status: Fine

# Hours the ATVs were Used today:

Deimos used: Yes

Hours: nor reported

Beginning charge:

Ending charge:

Currently charging: yes

HabCar used? Yes. We got one load of water in it today.

Notes and Comments: The four new rovers are charged but still need to
be put together and their seats modified. Progress will be reports as
I get to them.

We are using so much less water with the new toilet.

Summary of internet: Also needs to be added to template. Not sure
about Hab’s internet.

Summary of suits: This needs to be added to the template. All suits
are operational, 6 suits in EVA room. Two exploration suits in EVA
room, only one charger. Prototype exploration suit in EVA room. Two
exploration suits in Science Dome with no working chargers. I found a
bottle of soda lime on the stirrer in the lab and it was on. I turned
it off (hope it wasn’t Brandon’s, just thought about this).

Summary of Hab operations: Noted several failed systems and they are
noted above. The cement pad out the rear airlock needs some serious
cleaning.

Summary of GreenHab operations: Heating at 50 degrees F. It’s lovely
in there. Plants are looking good. Hose has a leak and freezes at
night. Needs to be modified to a very short hose that is taken in
every night or water taken directly from freeze free faucet. Crews
need to be sure they push the level all the way down and use it daily
to prevent freezing. Caution should be taken to not spill any water
on the ground as it will turn to dangerous ice,

Summary of ScienceDome operations: The lab is pretty much a mess.
Brandon is still doing his work, but lab will require cleaning before
next crew. Shop vac was not used nor put together.

Summary of health and safety issues: Still need alarms, will check to
be sure they were ordered.

Questions, concerns and requests to Mission Support: Please update
this template with the additions indicated. Thank you.

SOL: 14

Name of person filing report:  Carmen Atauconcha

Watching the beautiful hills on Mars, I truly could say that it has become my home. Mars with its mysterious shadows and shining soils has conquered my hearth.

This is my final engineering report:

Non-nominal systems:

WATER HEATER: The new water heater is not installed, yet. So, good luck to the next crew¡

CHARGERS OF THE SUITS: Two of the chargers are working, but we moved them and now it is hard for us to connect them, again.

THE DOOR AIRLOCK’S WINDOW: This day was very windy. I think Mars does not want to leave us. The fact is, because of the force of the wind the window went out. Now, it is secure inside the Hab, next to the astronaut costumes.

COMMUNICATION RADIOS: Three radios are not working. The first one because it is broke. The other two are not transmitting signal.

 

Generator—  It worked the whole night since 16:50pm of 16Nov2017 until 9:20 am of 17Nov2017.  Turn on at 17:00 pm 17Nov2017.  Operand.

Notes and Comments:

There are no words to express our experience on Mars. Each day has formed our relationship between each crew as a family.  About Mars, what can I say? I am in love of it.

 

Summary of Hab Operations:
In the morning we covered the hole that is in the highest part of the roof. Thus, the wind moved the hollow coverage and it is open again. We will fix it tonight again.  The toilet is starting to smell better than it was in our firs days on Mars.

The Hab is cleaned and organized. Be careful with the secondary airlock because it is wonky.  The heater is working very well.  The area of the tools is organized, please keep it like that.

Summary of GreenHab operations:

The tools and equipments in the greenhouse are organized and cleaned.  Take care of the plants because they are growing.  The greenhouse is like the lung of the station.

Summary of ScienceDome operations:

It is necessary to install a lamp there. The autoclave and the rest of equipments are working very nicely. Be careful while you use the autoclave, please read the instructions in of the manual that is in that laboratory. Without science we won’t be on Mars.

Summary of health and safety issues:

It is hard to bring the food from the first floor of the Hab to the second floor. This fact is because the stairs are very steep. Thanks for the new stairs. Health and safety are first.

This experience has ended and my report, too. How the water moves on Earth, the time flies on Mars. We only have the hope to understand how the universe works. You will be always in my heart Mars.

I would call today, the day of cleaning. Everyone here is tired. Literally, we cleaned every hole here. There was too much dust. Today in the morning, the commander went to search transportation to return to the Earth.  We are sad to leave Mars, and at the same time, happy for returning at home.

From another hand, survivor man is coming. We are so excited¡

 

Summary of Hab Operations:
We cleaned the whole hab. We found, a couple of glasses and gloves, behind the area of the tools.

Summary of GreenHab operations:

We cleaned the greenhouse. We found too much dust. The two wheelbarrows are in the greenhouse, now.

Summary of ScienceDome operations:

The science dome is finally cleaned. In fact, we found tons of dust under the carpet.

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

Summary of health and safety issues:

Now, we can say the station is in equilibrium with our health and safety.

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.

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:

We turned on the heater at 18:12 pm with a temperature of 47 °F.  At the same time, we are cleaning this area to make it beautiful.

Summary of ScienceDome operations:

We received a new shop vac. It has been installed in the laboratory. Also, there were cables going through the laboratory that we order to keep the security in the laboratory.

Summary of health and safety issues:

The HOS officer needs two fire alarms and lamps for the science dome and for the greenhouse. In the morning we fixed the stair of the secondary airlock.  Now, that stair is more stable.

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?

When are we going to receive water?

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?
