Crew 216 Commander Report 28-NOV-2019
Sol: 4
Summary Title: A Martian Thanksgiving
Author’s name: Marc Levesque
Crew 216 spent a low key day after three busy days taking advantage of good weather to accomplish six EVAs in support of projects. The morning saw an EVA team cleaning the muddy rovers, while the afternoon was devoted to preparing and eating our holiday meal. Our head chef Andrew started by putting a chicken into the convection oven for its 2.5 hour roasting. He then went to work on making biscuit and two fruit pies. In the meantime, Marc cut up Watney potatoes to join the roasting chicken. Rich pitched in with making the stuffing to round out the menu. Evgenia filmed the entire process so that she could add a homey touch to her documentary film. All hands then pitched in for the massive clean up. After some time to digest the sumptuous meal and crank out the day’s reports, the crew will settle into it’s second movie night. Last night was the premier of The Martian (of course), with tonight’s movie to be Interstellar. Our crew are movie buffs, especially of the space genre.
