Summary Title: Logistics Drop Successful

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

Mission Status: Nominal

Sol Activity Summary: The crew completed EVA #7 which was a complex logistics cache scenario which involved the assessment of using the cache on a 3-hr hike for emergency rations. The test was a success and the crew was ecstatic with the results. While the research is in its first stages, the proof of concept leads to exciting larger applications for Lunar and Martian operations. The astronomy crew processed solar images earlier today, unfortunately the overcast that rolled in the evening has blocked night sky observations again. The crew closed the evening with debriefs, surveys, and prepped for the public outreach day scheduled for Monday (Sol 8).

Look Ahead Plan: The crew looks forward to its public outreach day tomorrow and speaking with elementary and middle school students, families, friends, and colleagues who have supported this mission and made it possible.
