Narrative: The ninth EVA for science saw us returning to the Tank Wash location #2 at 518477E 4253767N where we continued sampling the 1m x 1m plots for micrometeorites. The EVA allowed us to collect 23 samples. We anticipate 2 x normal length or possibly 1 x longer duration EVAs will complete this sampling program. We have now completed 64% of the grid, which included 4 grid squared compromised by footprints.

Destination: Drove from the hab along Cow Dung Road to Tank Wash and then returned to the hab.
