EVA # 13
Author: Laurène Delsupexhe
Purpose of EVA: Experiment with robot Lazarus + Exploring Sagan Street
Start time: 11:50am
End time: 1:40 pm
Narrative: The crew left the main Hab at 11:50am with the robot and tested 3 times the same straight path of 10m close to the observatory. After that, they left the equipment in the airlock for the team in the Hab to download the data and recharge the battery. Meanwhile, Laurène and Cristina headed towards the North Ridge in order to reach Sagan Street. The Mission Support Crew contacted them to let them know the testing of the robot had not properly worked. As there was still an hour and a half in the EVA and the crew was already halfway to Sagan Street, they decided to continue the exploration part of the EVA. They reached their destination, took some samples to test later on and headed back to the station by the same way they arrived. They ended their EVA as soon as they came back to the station and decided that Paula and Marta will redo the test during their EVA.
