EVA Report – February 3th

Crew 240 EVA Report 03-02-2022

EVA #4

Author: François Vinet

Purpose of EVA: 3D mapping North Ridge with a drone, climbing up Hab Ridge

Start time: 2.00pm

End time: 3.45pm

Narrative: It took 20 minutes to reach North Ridge on foot. The 3D mapping by drones was complicated and had to be done 2 times but the end result was satisfactory. The following goal was to climb the Hab Ridge to see the station from above and explore the area. However, one of the members had a significant back pain because of the suit followed by a loss of headset and microphones (the microphone used was different from the others and it is the second time we have a problem with it. A replacement request will be done in the Operation Report. Moreover, some tests will be done during the evening with the suit to adapt it better to the member). We decided to turn around before reaching Hab Rridge and we went back to the Hab.
