Summary Title: Productive work day.

Mission Status: Nominal

Sol Activity Summary: While four of us were on EVA, the others (including me) did a sport session, swept the lower Hab and started the Mars puzzle. For lunch we cooked a delicious french gratin dauphinois -it is good to know that it is possible to do béchamel with dehydrated butter! In the afternoon, some of us were occupied with prepping MegaAres -that we might finally setup outside with the rest of the atmospheric experiments by the beginning of next week, Human Factors experiments that were exhausting, HF communication tests, and astronomy post-processing. Some bread is in the oven for tonights diner.

Look Ahead Plan: We are looking forward to trying communication with Toulouse tomorrow with our HF antenna. Hopefully the weather and terrain conditions will be good enough to do our first LIBS analysis during EVA.
