MDRS Daily Summary Report for sol

Stinky like Pepe LePew but na, na, na, stayin’ alive!
Mission Status: We’re OK. There are no incidents to report.

Sol Activity Summary:
First SIM day went pretty well. Our breakfast was simple enough and then, we prepared for the EVA session. There is a lot going on in those sessions, though. We had some disgareements at first, but everything went well at 2 p.m. (EVA time!) There was some trouble with the radios, though, but we will try to fix that tonight. Weather was fine, too, although the wind decided to blow with some power, just in our EVA session! But we’re pretty awesome, so our capacity to resist is above average.

The crew scientists are being pretty grumpy at this hour of the night. Some are worried about their plant pals! That doesn’t usually happenon Earth! Is this a consequence of Martian issolation? Who knows?

Look Ahead Plan: Tomorrow, we’ll continue with our experiments. It will be a hab day, tomorrow. Orobably we will repare some things and rearrange the lab. It needs a serious re-decoration. The Green Hab will need some repairs too.

Anomalies in work: We just had troubles with the radios, really. But we will figure something out later tonight.

Weather: … Windy. Somewhat cloudy and just chilly.

Crew Physical Status: Everyone is in good shape. Thanks to our everyday meals! There is some tiredness, though, thanks to the EVA.

EVA: We just explored around the hab, less than a mile.

Reports to be file: Already sent. Please tell us if you need everything in one mail.
