Science Dome Operations: More micrometeorite samples were collected in the morning and
processed in the afternoon. Further gypsum samples were ground in preparation for the

Green Hab: Green Hab operations have continued. See Green Hab report.
RAM Operations: N/A
EVA: The fifth EVA for science saw us returning to the MM5 (518462E 4248949N) site
where 24 micrometeorite samples were collected. 64% of the grid has now been sampled.
See EVA Report.
EVA Suit Maintenance: Nominal. See Operations Report.
Psycho-social Stressors Monitoring: Data collection continues through the hexoskin
monitoring vests. The simulated emergency retrieval of the engineer was carried out
during the engineering EVA and the performance of all participants is being evaluated.
In addition, indicated modifications to the airlock that would make this activity
easier are being evaluated.
Additional activities: N/A.
