Name of person filing report: Wataru Okamoto

Non-nominal systems: Solar System, Trailer water

Notes on non-nominal systems:

  • – Solar system seems still unusual from Sol5. We are keeping a detailed monitoring. The system shows us P05 means the charger itself works well, but the number of SOC gave us wrong parameter. We will keep monitoring tomorrow.
  • – There are white Chemical substances on the water in trailer tank. I attach the photo.

EVA Report – March 31st

EVA Report

EVA #7 – 31 Mar 2018 – Sol7
Crew members: Fumiei Morisawa (EVA leader), Kai Takeda

– Operational check
– Water moving from Sub tank to Main tank

14:05 – Entering the airlock
14:08 – EVA start
14:53 – BACK
14:54 – Entering the Airlock
14:57 – Enter HAB

Today is day-off so today’s EVA was engineering check only. As CREW191 mission reached turnaround point, we moved water from sub-tank to main tank. In the operation we found something like glue on the surface of water in sub-tank. That looks like something chemical materials rather than biological pollution. Anyway, it may be just a little unpleasant for our health.

– none

The battery system was in trouble today noon.
That’s why I couldn’t switch on the fan until 15:30.

SOL Essay (Photo Description)
31 Mar 2018

Sol 07
Miho Tsukishiro (XO)

Today we had a day off! So nothing to describe, instead of that, we introduce our non-human crew: two robot-dog “Aibo”s and the automatic hydroponic machine “foop”.
Aibo, the lovely dogs ease the tense atmosphere in our closed life.
The machine foop is made for interior and we can see the process of plant’s growth.
They do NOT attend briefing, clean up the HAB and of course no EVA, but they are definitely part of our team and big support for us.
