EVA Report – April 8th

EVA #10
Author: Arnaud de Wergifosse (Scientist)
Purpose of EVA: This EVA will be focused on Romain Maddox’s experiment. On Sol 1, he took the baseline for his experiment, this time, he will do the second data collection and will continue on SOL11 and 12. The 5 crew members will continue the experiment by controlling a drone (Parrot Anafi) and doing 8 maneuvers with an estimate of 7 minutes per flight and per person and the same place that they did last time, Marble Ritual. Crew members will stay in a radius of about 60m around the rover. They should only go at around 20 meters but as we experienced last time, if the drone has a malfunction and crashes, we might need the 60 meter radius. Anyway, we will contact the Main Hab before exceeding 20 meters.
Start time: 8:06am
End time: 8:50am
Narrative: We got out at exactly 8 o’clock and directly went to Marble ritual. We didn’t want to waste time since near noon, the eclipse would be at its highest. Once we arrived at the location, we all flew the drone as intended with no problems. We headed back home and finished one of the shortest EVA’s. A quick but really efficient EVA.
