Journalist Report – February 23rd

Crew 222 Journalist Report 23Feb2020

Sol 7

Title: White land

It’s snowing outside! Here, the temperature easily drops below 0°C, staying at about -12°C for the majority of the night. The landscape feels changed, and it’s lucky that this change happened today since it is the middle of our mission. We started the simulation on Sunday, it’s been exactly one week since we started the mission, and there is one week left. We now have new sights to discover and new areas to explore in a different light!

Today is rest day. We’ve been working hard and going on EVA every day for a week, which has been tiring. We focused on ourselves today. We had new discussions, we read new books, we started putting together a summary video of our trip to get here… and of course caught up on sleep. Waking up at 6:45 to do sports every morning isn’t easy, even if it is worth it.

At the end of the mission, I can assure you that everyone will be able to solve a Rubik’s cube, thanks to Benjamin’s help! We also discovered space chess and battled hard.

We also took time to reflect on our mission so far. The beauty of the landscape is unanimously what we will remember most. Living with and only seeing six other people for a week has been a new experience for the majority of us, and so far, so good! We get along great.

Cooking has brought us closer: we bake bread daily, and sharing recipes between crew members makes us discover new tastes… and cooking abilities.
