Sol Summary – March 5th

Crew 293 Sol Summary Report 05-03-2024

Sol: 16

Summary Title: Sometimes you need to know how to start again…

Author’s name: Marie Delaroche, Crew Commander

Mission Status: Nominal

Sol Activity Summary:

Today, the Crew Scientist and GreenHab Officer, responsible for the photogrammetry study, realized that the map generated yesterday was not of sufficient quality to help the EVA teams locate the checkpoints. Rescheduling a photogrammetry EVA to Candor Chasma was no easy task, but in the end, we managed to rearrange everything in a way that would not impact our other studies too much.

As a result, this was a relatively quiet afternoon. The photogrammetry team developed a new strategy for tomorrow’s backup EVA, while the rest of the crew concentrated on keeping the station and experiments up and running.

Look Ahead Plan:

We are planning to perform a second photogrammetry EVA at Candor Chasma to map the area on Sol 17, and to reschedule the two follow up EVAs to Sol 19 and Sol 20.
