Sol Activity Summary:

Everyone was very excited for the beginning of the photogrammetry experiment this morning. This was the first of three EVAs scheduled this week to North Ridge. Using an Anafi AI Parrot drone, the GreenHab Officer performed a 3D scan of the entire North Ridge area, while the Crew Engineer and Scientist decided where they would place the checkpoints on the map. The EVA was successful; as soon as the team (composed of the three boys of the crew!) was back at the Hab, they started uploading the images and generating the map, which will be used by one of two teams to explore the area. Their performance in finding the checkpoints will be compared to that of a second team, given only a regular 2D map.

The morning EVA team also took advantage of their outing to change the atmospheric instruments’ battery, and troubleshoot the Field Mill. It is now fully operational!

This afternoon, we reached two milestones; all crewmembers are trained for the EchoFinder study, and the AI4U experiment is officially launched. Our Crew HSO also finished handling the data from the first week of Orbital Architecture, reaching a grand total of 25 GB !

A routine has slowly started to settle, bringing with it almost a sense of belonging. The whole team is invested, and putting the mission first. Nevertheless, we never miss an opportunity to remind each other to take care of ourselves.

Look Ahead Plan: Two EVAs are scheduled to take place at North Ridge this week, one with the 2D team (Sol 10) and one with the 3D team (Sol 12)
