Summary of RAM operations:

1- Every suit (from 1 to 9, I didn’t touch the two suits that are on the shelf under suits 7,8 and 9) was equipped with 3 replacement fuses, as discussed yesterday.

2- The battery of suit 9 was changed. We have lots of work to do before the end of the mission, so I won’t be able to test the battery for 4 hours, as with other suits, but the next crew could take care of it.

3- The zip-ties in the tunnel to the science dome were cut and lots of new ones were added on places where they were missing. There are only 2 large zip ties left. Also, there’s a lot of small zip ties in the RAM (the ones that belong to the Mars Society and the crew will also leave some to replace those we used), and some medium zip-ties(long but not large). I recommend buying some more medium size zip-ties, and large ones (those that are used for the tunnels)

Summary of any observatory issues: none

Summary of health and safety issues: none

Questions, concerns and requests to Mission Support:

We have a lot of stuff that we could leave to the next crews, since we won’t be needing it anymore, please tell me if we can leave them in the RAM:

-lots of metal tent stakes

-different types of screws, in their original sorting box

-two chargers for batteries that are functioning well

-lots of AA and AAA batteries

-electric tape, normal tape, foil-covered tape( also, there’s not enough simple black tape for future crews).
