Summary Title: Beginning of sim

Author’s name: Cerise Cuny

Mission Status: Nominal

Sol Activity Summary: This morning we went on with the training with Atila. We tried on the suits and everyone was attributed a specific suit number to keep during the whole mission. Then we tested the rovers on the main road from the MDRS to the intersection with Galileo Road. Back in the hab we went threw the maps. We were pleased to see that the points of interest for a Geological experience were definitely accessible. We went threw the sim philosophy with Atila. We tried to take photos in front of the Hab but the wind was too strong and we couldn’t keep our eyes open.

At noon, we enjoyed our last steps on Earth and definitely closed the door to start the sim. I did a quick motivational speech and each one of us expressed its expectations for this three-week experience as a group, on a professional point of view, and individually.

This afternoon we had some experiments to do : we did a tutorial for an Augmented Reality experiment, and some of us had individual experiments to prep for the rest of the sim.

Look Ahead Plan: Tomorrow we will do our first EVA and get more into the afternoon routine of experiments.
