Mission Support,

Greetings from Mars!!! One more day in the red planet, it’s
breathtaking how every Martian has been integrated. At 07:20 we were together at the lower deck to do some relaxing exercises in the lead of by David, who also cleaned the Hab with Luis. At 08:00, we ate breakfast together while we did the briefing.

The day looked promising because today we will be our first EVAs. We wanted to assets the performance of the crew with the suits
operations, so the routine of each EVA was to walk over even terrain, then drive using ATVs and Curiosity; and finally we made summit in Overlook Reach. The first group of the EVA was conformed by Atila, Oscar Danton and I; their time of donning started at 11:00 until 11:30, in that moment the real adventure began and lasted until 13:00. Later, in the habitat they gave advices to the following group of EVA. The second group was conformed by Atila, Tania, Luis and David. Their expedition lasted until 15:30. Both EVA was led by Atila. After each EVA, the crew started to exchange their feelings about to be in a real expedition, that feeling of been a Martian is unique!

By the way, between the 2 EVAs, at 13:20, Tania and I, went to the Musk Observatory just to check the status.

As lunch, Oscar cooked rice with cheese and meal, it was a delicious lunch! Later, Shannon visited us to explain about the map on Mars. She suggested us to visit wonderful places like Copernicus highway, Lith canyon, Tank wash, Candor Chasma, and so on… We plan to visit those places, thanks for your advice!

Today we are going to have our first movie night in Mars, we are so excited for that!

Look Ahead Plan:

There are two main things that the crew are waiting for tomorrow, do an EVA to collect some examples for Atila and David’s experiments. In addition, the Musk Solar Observatory will be used… Can you imagine it? Look the sun from Mars!!!

Anomalies in work:

The commander room’s door was locked from inside. David and Atila worked together to open it again! Now we know that a locksmith is a profession in Mars.
