SOL: 10
EVA #: 14
Author: Paolo Guardabasso

Purpose of EVA: Third EVA of the spit cortisol test.

Start time: 07:50
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, Paolo navigated between 2 waypoints with the map provided by MDRS (the other crew member in EVA had a GPS in case). The EVA team walked in the beautiful landscape, trying to find their way to the arrival waypoint. Once reached, they explored the area a little more and then went back to the rover and got back to the Hab.
