Crew 216 Sol Summary Report 30-NOV-19
Sol: 6
Summary Title: Rest and Reconnaissance
Author: Marc Levesque

Mission Status: Active

Sol Activity Summary: The crew spent the morning waiting for the ground to dry sufficiently to allow an afternoon EVA. This provided an opportunity for crew rest and pursuing projects for filming, the GreenHab, and astronomy. With sunny weather drying out the landscape, the afternoon EVA was approved and undertaken with caution. While the main objective of the EVA was to reach the summit of the North Ridge to determine a suitable repeater site was not achieved because of ground conditions, a reconnaissance and assessment of route alternatives to reach the top of the North Ridge was accomplished.

Look Ahead Plan: A film crew from Al Roker Entertainment will be arriving around 0900 to spend the day filming the MDRS, the crew, and its activities.

Anomalies in work: N/A.

Weather: Clearing and cold.

Crew Physical Status: Healthy
