Sol: 2

Summary Title: Jurassic Hunting

Author’s name: Atila Meszaros

Mission Status: Crew Biologist

Sol Activity Summary:

Finally on Mars! It’s been quite a while for some of us: our Commander’s last mission and mine was the last cohort for the Spaceward Bound in 2019, and after more than a year and a half, it feels wonderful to be back to Sim. Today was our first day in Sim. After a wonderful Geology lesson class from Dr. Rupert, we suited up and embarked to our destination to hunt petrified wood in the southern region of the Kissing Camels, a late Jurassic deposit. After our two successful EVAs, we did a small rock show between each other to see our bounties. We are preparing dinner and getting ready for a lovely night.

Look Ahead Plan: Our geology hunting will get more in-depth. Will visit two new sites to find a series of different rock samples. We would get into some hardcore Lego building and more teambuilding activities.

Anomalies in work: None.

Weather: Fully sunny, but with a great temperature throughout the day.

Crew Physical Status: Everyone is healthy, hydrating, and eating pretty good.

EVA: Tomorrow EVA #4 and EVA #5 to continue or geology hunting!

Reports to be filed: Operations Report, EVA Report, EVA Request, Crew Journalist

Support Requested: Nothing to report.
