Sol Summary – March 06th

Crew 223 Sol Summary Report 06-03-2020

Sol: 5 Summary Title: Mid rotation is coming to fast

Author’s name: Aurélien Mure – Crew Commander

Mission Status: Everything’s fine

Sol Activity Summary:

The crew woke up at 6:50am. The sport session began at 7:00am. Our
training is made of different exercises repeated 3 times 20s on Monday
and Tuesday, twice 30s on Wednesday and Thursday and once 1min on Friday
and Saturday.
The one minute duration exercise is really exhausting for the muscles
and it was a little bit painful this morning!
During the EVA, the team has changed the batteries of the LOAC and
MegaAres and then explored North Ridge. They were truly happy about what
they saw considering their smile at the end. I think our communications
are getting better and better in EVA. That is why we worked with Luc on
a protocole enabling us to perform a non verbal communication EVA.
Florian has worked on his astronomy researches for a while. Then I
worked with Florian and Blandine on the solar oven that is ready to go
our tomorrow.
Clément and Valentin took care of some cress and radishes for our Music
for plants experiment.
Marion tried to unlock the code for our display panel.
Tonight, we realise that midrotation is arriving too fast. For me it is
a real difference as I was involved in a 3 weeks rotation last year, it
changes a lot!

Look Ahead Plan:

The non verbal EVA planned is really exciting, and the solar oven will
be set up
