Summary Title: A Long Day’s Journey into Night
Author’s name: Sionade Robinson
Mission Status: Ongoing

Sol Activity Summary: A busy day for Crew 238 with individual and group research projects underway including a briefing on fire fighting for Mars (and Earth); crew research comparing with latency generated messaging vs a new method to solve for latency, and an afternoon data
collecting EVA. We rounded off with a workshop on the wellbeing benefits of lavender (both ingested and inhaled). After dinner we’ll be continuing with a briefing to prepare for further group exercises.

Look Ahead Plan: Continuation of research activities including two EVA requests for tomorrow subject to approval by Mission Support.

Anomalies in work: None.

Weather: Sunny and warmer than expected on the EVA

Crew Physical Status: Nominal

EVA: A long and successful EVA to Special Region for Robinson, Werner
and Pokrywka. Left at 12.47 and returned at 15.30.
