EVA Report – November 7th

EVA # 11
Author: Laurène Delsupexhe – Crew Engineer
Purpose of EVA: Testing of the Dronomy robot + Explore the surroundings of the Hab.
Start time: 2:10 pm
End time: 4:30 pm
Narrative: After double-checking the 2 suits were fully charged, the EVA crew waited for a final confirmation from Mission Support. Once they had it, they left the hab to reach an area east of the Marble’s Ritual, quite flat and less windy, where they set up the experiment of the Dronomy robot. The testing went well and the robot responded as predicted. The data was collected but the memory was full a little earlier than predicted. Once finished with the experiment, the EVA Crew headed back to the station to drop off in the airlock the robot and the necessary instruments. They then headed back north of the station, aiming for a hill north of the Marble’s ritual. Some photos were taken and soil was collected. The crew then headed back home, tired but satisfied
