Summary Title: Safe return on Earth

Author’s name: Cerise Cuny

Mission Status: Nominal

Sol Activity Summary: This morning, during EVA we were able to disassemble the atmospheric experiment and the HF antenna, quite quickly. Valentine did the last session of the Human Factors Experiment. The rest of the day was dedicated to tidying and cleaning the Science Dome, the RAM and the Hab.

We were very moved to live our last moments on Mars. We broke the sim at 5:44pm. After enjoying Earth’s gravity and feeling the air on our skin, we jumped into the Crew Car to have burgers in Hanksville. We were getting less and less inspired with the dehydrated food, so we found the burgers particularly tasty. It was also kind of emotional to talk to strangers.

Look ahead plan: Tonight, we will stargaze and tomorrow morning we will go watch the sunrise. After that we will do the last of the cleaning and head back to Grand Junction.
