EVA Report – April 3rd

Crew 227 EVA Report 3rd April 2022
SOL: 7
Name of person filing report: Jean Jacobs

Purpose of EVA: Further exploration of the Tank wash starting at Cow Dung Road

Start time: 9:00

End time: 12:00

Narrative: The team drove up 500m North of reservoir Dam on Cow Dung Road and parked the rovers in front of the beginning of Tank wash as did yesterday’s team. Then they entered the wash and directly went as far as they could. They were able to reach 425500 N; 520750 E a pillar rock in the middle of the canyon about 2.5 km within. We fired up the drone to take pictures for future 3D modeling. The canyon layers seemed like sheets of rocks making it look like a book on the side. Unfortunately, the picture taken lacked the GPS coordinate to make a 3D map of the canyon making it impossible to map the canyon.

Despite a cloudy morning, we did not have any rain.
