Summary Title: Finally on Mars!
Author’s name: Paolo Guardabasso

Mission status: From today we are finally on Mars, and several experiments are ongoing.

Sol Activity Summary: Today the weather was more favourable, and the crew was able to perform the first EVA in the morning. After lunch, we had to break sim to retrieve some cargo in town. In the afternoon, we dedicated some time to process wearable sensors data from the EVA and kick-off the Astroskin experiment (continuous monitoring). We were also able to take the picture with the Yuri’s banner, which was the first time the whole crew was in a picture.

Look Ahead Plan: Tomorrow morning 3 crew members will perform an EVA to collect some samples, while the rest of the crew will assemble the satellite ground station. One member will have to briefly break sim to retrieve cargo in town. In the afternoon, we’ll do an EVA to complete (hopefully) the exterior assembly of the ground station.

Anomalies in work: We had to cancel the afternoon EVA because of cargo arriving in town.

Weather: Today it was less windy than yesterday, but it is getting also colder. Temperature 1 (low) and 8 (high), Wind speed 43 (avg) and 53 (max)

Crew Physical Status: All nominal, but a bit cold because of the broken heater.

EVA: First EVA performed in the morning, all nominal.
