Sol Activity Summary:

Today is Valentine’s day on Earth and also the last day for us on Mars. Yesterday the team played “King Mao” , a card game from Crew GreenHab Officer J. Todd and the team loved a lot, it is about figuring out rules that only one person knows, that is “King Mao”!

The crew woke up for the last time on Mars and celebrated it with scrambled eggs prepared again from crew journalist H. Kalucha. They were delicious!

After a great breakfast crew commander M.Grulich and crew HSO R. Alshammari prepared for the last EVA on Mars to the Moons! The EVA preparation went well and also the whole EVA was a complete success. They installed the antenna again in the field on top of a little hill. The rover was used in two different locations collecting very interesting samples as the surface was white and underneath red. The team also used acid to see if there are some carbonate components but no luck.

After the EVA was completed, the team had lunch and prepared some outreach videos to be shown back in our countries as well as doing last soil testing and checking on the microbiology samples.

On our last evening on Mars we will have a Valentine’s Day gift exchange as we draw secretly names of the crew members and prepared a Valentines gift! The crew commander also prepared a small surprise for the crew… See you back on Earth! It was a great two weeks and we achieved almost all our objectives and Mars treated us well! Until the next time… Ad Astra!
