EVA #: 12
Author: Vittorio Netti

Purpose of EVA: First EVA of the spit cortisol test.
Start time: 07:45
End time: 10:00
Narrative: This EVA was part of 4 EVAs to evaluate the cortisol levels in 2 crew members before and after an EVA, with or without the help of a detailed map of the area obtained previously with a drone. In this EVA, Vittorio navigated between 2 waypoints with the official MDRS map (the other crew member will have a GPS in case). The EVA team walked in the beautiful landscape, trying to find their way to the arrival waypoint. Once reached, they went back to the rover and got back to the Hab.
