Sol 3

Summary Title : Taking care of the Hab

Author : Jeremy Auclair

Mission Status : All nominal

Sol Activity Summary : Once again we got out of bed at 07:00 am to
workout, but everybody had slept well, we went to bed early yesterday.
Our Dreem Headbands showed that we had an effective time of sleep
ranging from 6h20 and 8h20, I slept more than everyone else ! After
breakfast we prepared the EVA. It was the first EVA without a veteran,
Aurélien was EVA leader. It went very well, Opportunity’s battery
decreased quickly so they went for plan B. They explored the moon areas.
During the EVA Cerise and I cleaned the Hab’s lower and upper deck. I
then took care of the water consumption data : on Sol 2 (yesterday) we
used 77,4L (20,5 Gallons), with 41% for the GreenHab, 25% for drinking,
13% for flushes, 6% for dishes, 5% for cooking, 2% for hygiene (no
showers yet) and 8% of unmeasured consumption. Unmeasured consumption
comes from inaccuracies and small mistakes in counting, this part of
daily consumption should decrease during the mission. After lunch,
everyone worked on their experiments (except me, I took a good nap).
Aurélien, Benjamin, Gaspard and Norbert did some pre-EVA tests on their
space suit, all the vital functions work, but it still needs to be
improved the ergonomic standpoint. Cerise worked on Aquapad to measure
the microbial quality of our water. First results suggest that the water
drinkability is problematic, but it is surely a manipulation or data
interpretation, we have sent a mail to the BioMérieux laboratories to
have an explanation. Before the COMMS, as planned, we participated to the
Virtual Reality experiment.

Look ahead plan : Tomorrow is once again going to be a busy day, we have
4 experiments planned. Tomorrow’s EVA will allow us to train the last
members of the crew.
