SOL: 2
EVA #: 1
Author: Simone Paternostro

Purpose of EVA: We performed our first EVA of the mission to and collect geological and biological samples in two locations in the vicinity of Marble Ritual, test driving rovers, troubleshoot wearable sensors on arm and shoe
Start time: 10:30
End time: 12:30
Narrative: The three crew members left the Hab and moved in the direction of West, North-West with two rovers (Opportunity and Perseverance). After few hundreds meter from the habitat we stopped to reach the first targeted point to collect the geological and biological sample. Being the first time, it took a bit of time to follow the procedure for the collection that required to take several pictures, note down coordinates and descriptions of the locations and samples, but it went already much faster at the second location. The crew came back at the hab perfectly on time and successfully collected 2 geological samples and 2 biological samples that will be analysed/processed later on during the mission.
