Summary of suits and radios:
Radios charging.
We disconnected suit 3 from charging and the fan was turning on only
at maximum power. We checked the battery and the voltage was 6 V.
Same problem with suits 4 and 6 (they wouldn’t even turn on the
fan), that both had 4V in fully charged state.
We tried charging them with another charger (to see if that might be
the problem, but the low voltage did not change).
Suit 1, once disconnected, is working only at maximum speed.
Slightly reducing the speed causes the suit not to working.
We request authorization to substitute the three batteries.
Summary of GreenHab operations:
WATER USE: 0 gallons
Heater: Off
Supplemental light: Off
Harvest:
Summary of ScienceDome operations:
Checked inventory
Dual split (Heat/AC): Off
Summary of RAM operations: Not used, nothing to report
Summary of any observatory issues: Not used, nothing to report
Summary of health and safety issues:
The main door is now damaged due to high winds and cannot stay
closed. We used the red wired to secure it within the habitat, passing
through the airlock and being wired to a metal tube. This is preventing the
Martians to use the airlock and reduce the exits.
Furthermore, the side bar right outside the main door has been
damaged by the door slamming wide open into it. Tomorrow we will check if it
will be sufficient to screw it firmly or if other type of repair will be
necessary.
Questions, concerns and requests to Mission Support:
Suits: we request authorization to substitute the three batteries.
Where should we put disposable batteries (AA, AAA)?
Concern: with the high winds the main door is not safe, it could fly
away or anyway get permanently damaged.
