Crew 271 Sol Summary Report 23-12-2022
Summary Title: Field work
Author’s name: Marc Levesque, Commander
Mission Status: Nominal
Sol Activity Summary: The crew completed two EVAs today. The first was a short walk north of the Hab in the morning to take measurements at Eifert’s project site. Later that morning, a longer EVA was planned to reach the southern rim of Lith Canyon via the Burpee Quarry as part of the communications project. Because of rapid battery drain likely due to the cold, the EVA team had to leave the rovers at Brahe Highway and walk to the Quarry, resulting in a shorter walk than planned. Communication checks with the Hab were made along the way to determine if the heightened repeater antenna reached these areas.
Look Ahead Plan: Two EVAs are planned, a short one in the morning for Eifert’s project, and a simulated drone recovery exercise northeast of the Hab.
