EVA Report – November 16th

EVA #9 Report
Today’s EVA would’ve started at 11 AM and ended at 2 PM. Our goal would’ve been to go to Lith Canyon, collect samples from the Salt Wash Member, and return to the Hab. Our EVA for today did not take place, since we needed additional time to clean up the Hab before Survivorman arrives. Also we needed to figure out our transfer arrangements so that we’ll be able to get to Salt Lake City in time to catch their flight. EVA request coming soon!

Hi, Sylvain! Atila, here. I hope you are having an amazing night.

Kevin’s crops are growing pretty solid, Julio already sent a picture. It’s crazy! I wanted to ask what’s the plan for them.

I thought that the seeds on the Petri dishes were ready to be planted on the analog soil, again. They just needed another one more day. The quinoa seeds are not germinating on the control, either. I’m guessing that the day I didn’t water them was enough for them from drying. That almost killed all the project! I will need to continue with my experiment on my university with the analog soil to get solid results.

I think that’s pretty much all, if you need more information about the GH I will be glad to send it to you.

Thank you for being there, Sylvain!

Have a beautiful night on Earth.

Notes and Comments:

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.

Questions, concerns and requests to Mission Support:
