Summary of suits and radios: The radios worked fine for today’s EVA. Suit #6 fan started running extremely low (in the airlock) after returning from the EVA. Our EVA duration was 2.5 hours. The voltage before EVA was 13.12 V and post EVA it was 9.15V. The fan running low might be due to the low voltage. I remember Crew 291 Engineer performed a 1-hour fan run test to see if the battery was faulty for a similar situation. Do I have permission to run that test on Suit #6? Need Advice.

Summary of Science Dome operations: Daniel used the Science Dome after sending the EVA team out, starting a non-targeted PCR run of extracted DNA from samples collected on EVA 4 on Sol 4. Towards the end of the run, he prepared an electrophoresis gel to visualize the results of the PCR and found DNA from soil that was collected from underneath a rock. An image was taken and annotated, further PCR’s will be performed to identify this DNA and investigate the presence of a range of biogeochemical genes. Annalea used it for her drawings on concretions.
