Title: Welcome home!

As we woke up on the red planet this morning, it felt like we were finally home. The sun was up before us and shone brightly on the hills. The Hab was hectic as everyone woke up, and the previous crew was getting ready to leave. After saying our goodbyes, we settled into our rooms. It’s hard to believe we are finally here, after a whole year of preparation! It seems so unreal.

To start off the day, the Director gave us a briefing on the station, and then we prepared our first meal. On the menu: rice with dehydrated green peas and sweet potatoes!

A delicious introduction to Martian cuisine.

But before our mission can truly start, there are still some things to be done.

Today is ‘training day’.

Everything has to be ready to start the sim tonight. This means doing the food inventory, ensuring the suits all work, and most importantly (or at least most fun), this means learning how to drive the rovers and ATVs! We went for a drive on both to get the hang of the vehicles. When we will drive on EVA, it will be harder to maneuver with the suits so everyone got to try. Even our seasoned commander took the wheel!

As the day started to wind down, we started working on our reports.

Clicks of keyboards were the only sounds we heard for an hour. The astronomer sent his photos, the commander wrote his Sol Summary, the engineer went on his last non-sim check of all life-support and transportation systems… and I wrote down these very words.

Tonight, the simulation starts. Tonight, our mission begins. Tonight, we dine on Mars!

Sol Summary – February 16th

Crew 222 Sol Summary Report 16-02-2020
Sol: 0 Summary Title: Getting ready to Mars
Author’s name: Benjamin Auzou – Crew Commander

Mission Status: Crew 222 ready to go on Sim

Sol Activity Summary:

At 8 am, the whole crew woke up as the crew 221 was preparing to leave. Just after the departure of the crew 221, we took our first breakfast at the station. At 11 am, we started the briefing with Dr. Rupert, and the crew passed the test! I am proud of everyone.

After lunch, we checked all the suits and started the food inventory. Then the crew trained on both ATVs and rovers.

At the end of the afternoon, we were ready to start the sim and closed the door at 6:57 pm.

We’re finally on Mars!

During the dinner tonight we will discuss all together on the goals of our missions, from personal and crew point of view.

Look Ahead Plan:

Tomorrow will be our first day on sim, we will go on EVA in the morning if the weather allows it in order to set an experiment on the field.

Also, a TV journalist will come to the station to follow and film our activities.

We will launch experiments on the campus in the afternoon, such as GreenHab or human factors experiments.

The mission plan and crew bios will be sent at tomorrow’s COMMS.
