Fare well Mars crops. We think of you often…

Author: Dana Levin
This concludes the mission of crew 195. We have suffered many a crisis and the crew has weathered them bravely. We’ve been down but not out, beaten but not broken, Spurned but never scorned, cloudy but not stormy, free but not clear, and many other things. In the end, this crew has handled the rigors of our cruel mistress mars well and looks forward to our return to earth having been enriched by the experience and our lives changed permanently and forever.
Crew 195 EVA Report 25May2018
The crew set out to the nearby site they’ve dubbed the “martian graveyard” to search for signs of ancient life. Unfortunately they were yet again beset by crisis when crew members became incapacitated in the simulation. The crew expertly handled the situation as they have many times before and discussed the management and events afterwards with a fantastic debrief. This crew’s final EVA was executed with expert ability and demonstrated their command of the complex material they learned during this course.
