Sol Activity Summary: Crew 221 Earth2Mars arrived on the station meeting members of MDRS-MAU crew 220. The handover of the station was done yesterday from two commanders Shawna and John. Both crews went out for burgers and after a night in the science dome, the crew started their final preparation to start our journey to Mars. Everyone is very excited after one year of preparation to get here to start the rotation.

This morning we waived crew 220 ‘goodbye’, being happy that we could meet this incredible crew and see what they have accomplished. Crew 221 will try its best to also accomplish most of their mission goals.

Today the crew spent all day preparing filling up the water tanks, getting rover training and moving into their new homes and having our first MDRS meals on the completely new oven.

Tomorrow we will wake up on Mars we are looking forward to our launch!
