EVA Report – November 29th

EVA #3

Author: Enkhtuvshin “Dono” Doyodkhuu

Purpose of EVA: Reconnaissance

Start time: 10:20AM

End time: 11:35AM

Narrative: We discussed amongst ourselves and decided to cancel the EVA to Robert’s Rock Garden and switched participants. Muggi was the EVA leader this time, with Davaa and Dono as the designated drivers. We were initially planning to reach Cowboy Corner, but we had more than 70% on both Spirit and Opportunity, so we tried going as far as we could until we hit 55%. The road was very smooth until we reached a decline, and the rovers were at 60%. CAPCOMM was directed by HSO Duluu this time, and she advised us to park the rovers and explore on foot. We took pictures and videos of the surrounding area and headed back to the HAB. At the end, both rovers were at 48%, so we are confident we can explore much farther next time.
