First of all this EVA was followed by a journalist, who filmed the activities on the field.
After the first steps on Mars for three of us, we checked all rovers status and the static tank level. Then we moved to the place we needed to set the experiment, which needs to be a plane area.
The installation was successful for both parts of the experiment. At 11:10am, the installation was finished and then we had some minutes to study the area to find a location for MegaAres, the experiment that we will deploy tomorrow.
