Sol Summary – March 7th

Crew 293 Sol Summary Report 07-03-2024


Summary Title: A multi-faceted Crew

Author’s name: Marie Delaroche, Crew Commander

Mission Status: Nominal

Sol Activity Summary:

Today, our Crew Scientist dedicated most of his time to generating and “cleaning” the 3D map in order to render it usable to navigate the canyon. He finished just in time for the HSO and I to prepare tomorrow’s outing! We sketched remarkable sites and prominences in the landscape, to help us locate the checkpoints. I am particularly looking forward to this EVA, as I was unable to explore Candor Chasma during my last rotation at the Mars Desert Research Station.

Speaking of EVAs, the Crew Engineer changed all non-nominal suits’ batteries, and is currently running voltage and airflow tests to validate them for use.

Look Ahead Plan:

Two exploration EVAs are planned, on Sol 19 and 20, to explore Candor Chasma with the 2D and 3D maps. On Sol 19, the drone will be piloted from the Science Dome to capture images of the station’s surroundings and lay some groundwork for the next photogrammetry location.

Anomalies in work: So far, battery replacement on the non-nominal EVA suits seems to have worked. See Operations Report.

Weather: Cloudy, low 2°C, high 15°C
