Sol Summary Report – February 3th

Crew 274 Sol Summary Report 02-03-2023

Sol: 5

Summary Title: Logistics Cache Placement, Movie Magic, and Solar Sky

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

Mission Status: Nominal

Sol Activity Summary: The crew was able to finally execute an EVA today. The EVA’s purpose was to place the logistics cache in a strategic location for future EVA studies. Navigating the terrain, range placement, and ensuring safety played a large part in preparing for this specific study. Tomorrow, the crew will inspect the cache’s performance overnight which is powered by solar and a small battery. Throughout the mission, the crew journalist has been heavily photographing and documenting the many science projects performed by Crew 274. Each morning the crew wakes up to a personal message left by a loved one or a member of the university and a song to start the day. Journalist DiBernardo tirelessly serves the crew not just as a member but meticulously captures little moments, smiles, laughs, and success. We thank Tony “Ironman” for all his efforts. The astronomy team successfully captured over 10,000 solar images and 180 night sky images after a series of technical issues.

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