Sol: 6

Summary Title: Cache Assessment, Green Beans, and Alien Spaceships?

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

Mission Status: Nominal

Sol Activity Summary: The crew completed EVA #6 which was an assessment of the logistics cache performance overnight. The cache box (EEVAC-1) was able to maintain power and temperature successfully. The crew also took measurements of the oranges which was a community submission from a 2nd grader to explore the effects of fruit on Mars. The fruit seems unphased by the Martian elements through the protection of the cache. The crew enjoyed a “feast” of greenhouse harvest at dinner which brought a pleasant tone to the meal with fresh green beans (approx. 67) and cherry tomatoes (29). Tonight is the first day of the mediation and focused breathing study, which will be after reports are filed. The astronomy team captured several massive prominences, sun spots, granules, and solar flares. While reviewing the footage, the crew noticed a small speck flying across the Sun’s image. While it is not known yet what the fast moving object was, it was exciting and captured the crew’s imagination. Aliens?

Look Ahead Plan: The crew looks forward to the emergency scenario exercise of the cache system (pending approval).
