Crew 279 Sol Summary Report 4-3-23

Sol: 1

Summary Title: A windy and intense start

Author’s name: Antoine de Barquin – Crew Commander

Mission Status: Nominal
Sol Activity Summary:
First awakening for the Ares crew on the Martian soil. The night was short and turbulent because of the wind but the team started the day more motivated than ever. We are now occupying this planet and intend to discover all of its secrets. The first step on the ground came at 9:15 am during the first EVA training. The team was able to practice moving in their suits, driving the rovers and communicating with each other and with the base.
During this time, the rest of the crew could realize an inventory of the material and the food in order to organize the continuation of the simulation.
The work of the previous teams was appreciated during the tasting of the first tomatoes harvested in the GreenHab ! The end of lunch launched the start of each crew member’s experiments. While some built a 3D printer in the Ram, others developed a bacterial culture in the Science Dome.
At the end of the day the strong winds caused a breach in the tunnel blocking the commander in the science dome for the time of the repairs.
Look Ahead Plan:
In Sol 2 a second EVA training is planned for the rest of the crew. This EVA will finish the training of the crew and the outdoor experiences will start on Sol 3.

Anomalies in work:
Headset malfunction to be repaired tomorrow
Breach in the tunnel leading to the science dome. Repair already done
