Summary Title: Rocket Recovery!

Author’s name: Ben Easter

Mission Status: We are a slightly different crew of 20 students as well as instructors from the University of Colorado. Our time at MDRS is part of a CU-Boulder course on Medicine in Space and Surface Environments. The students have learned Wilderness First Aid and CPR, and they will be learning how to provide this care during medical contingency simulations on Mars. The group arrived yesterday and erected a dome for our classroom space (see pictures).

Sol Activity Summary: Rocket launch successful. Sent supplies to other explorers in need. After a few technical issues, we were able to launch to 10000ft. We then tracked and recovered the payload successfully. Some minor damage to medications was involved but overall we provided care to a crew in need.
