Purpose of EVA: Replacement of the batteries of MegaAres and LOAC. Then
exploration from Galileo road to Candor Chasma.
Start time: 9:08am
End time: 12:30am
Narrative: We quickly replaced the batteries of MegaAres and LOAC. We
then headed towards Galileo road with 3 ATVs and Deimos. On the road, we
met a group of antelopes that crossed the road in front of us, we
managed to drive slowly and tried to disturb them as less as possible.
We stopped at the end of the road and then walked toward the canyon. We
walked along it and stopped at 11am to turn back. The road back to the
Hab was nominal. Near the Hab we took five minutes to take portraits for
the communication of our mission.
