Sol Summary Report – February 2th

Crew 274 Sol Summary Report 02-02-2023

Sol: 4

Summary Title: Holding Pattern

Author’s name: Sarah E. Guthrie (“Ceres”), Commander

Mission Status: Nominal

Sol Activity Summary: The day was spent in a holding pattern. Before the crew was able to egress the habitat for EVA today, it was terminated by Mission Control. Therefore the crew spent the day rewriting their EVA proposal for the logistics cache research project, which is an intense study that requires meticulous efforts to plan and prepare for in order to execute. The MDRS Robotic Telescope is still malfunctioning and (again) did not take any photos despite following the troubleshooting guidance provided. The Greenhouse is lush and full of life, it’s a peaceful oasis for those who want to take in sunshine and smell the greenery. As a large crew of eight members (seven men, two women) living in close quarters has been an enjoyable experience and despite being unable to complete several science projects morale is still HIGH, and the crew is full of laughs.

Look Ahead Plan: The crew looks forward to possible cache EVA deployment and new solar images from the astronomy crew (fingers crossed).
