Commander Report – November 6th

Sol: 7
Summary Title: A chilled Sunday on Mars
Author’s name: Marta Ferran-Marqués, Commander and Crew Scientist
Mission Status: Nominal
Commander Report: Our crew woke up this morning at 8.30 am, and Laurene prepared some pancakes – that was great for a Sunday morning! Later in the morning, the crew did some troubleshooting activities in the EVAs suits. As the day before, the crew realised that the air of some suits was not working properly. Once the crew detected the best suits available, Paula and Laurene went for an EVA around the MDRS Ridge. The purpose of the EVA was exploration. However, Laurene’s suit was not working properly and the crew had to come back to the Hab earlier than expected. Meanwhile, Cristina and Marta continued with the troubleshooting activities – thanks Mission Control for your support on that!

Paula and Marta cooked some Quinoa and cheese bread for lunch – the crew really enjoyed this meal. Later on the day, the crew relaxed and enjoyed a chilled Sunday by watching a World War I movie. Then, the crew continued with more troubleshooting activities for the EVA suits.

Tonight we will prepare a lighter meal – the crew is ready for the second week of the Nerio I mission at MDRS!
