Last day on Mars for the crew 227 : Tharsis.
This morning was the last EVA for Cyril, Jean, Julie, Ignacio and me.
One of the most beautiful EVA of our adventure. On the program ECG for Jean’s experience, 3D mapping for Cyril in the Candor Chasma. We started by climbing a rock to have a good view to choose the most optimal place to enter the canyon. Julie did an incredible climb for someone in a space suit ! You had to know your body exactly and have confidence in yourself. That’s just like Julie 😉

She quickly found an entrance thanks to her position. So we left in the direction of this area which had not yet been explored by our team. A magical place we entered very quickly and soon the strata of rock pillars stood in front of us. An oasis of wonderful landscape. We returned and then our life on this planet came to an end little by little. The tidying up began and the red vision of the outside will remain marked for life.

Thanks to:
Cyril Wain, Commander
Jean Jacobs, Executive Officer
Audrey Comein, Crew scientist
Julie Manon, Health and safety Officer
