Journalist Report – April 1st

Crew 296 Journalist report
By Alba Sanchez Montalvo

First day on Mars! This morning, the crew ATLAS had breakfast together after taking their probiotic/placebo treatment and prepared for their morning EVA which was mainly about drones. Half of the crew performed the baseline register for Romain’s experiment and learned how to do different manipulations with his drone. On the other hand, Louis started evaluating the surroundings for his experiment with his drone.
After lunch, Alba, Arnaud and Imane performed blood cell count in a few drops of blood and collected saliva from the crew members for their biomedical research. Right after that, in the afternoon, the other half of the team went on an EVA to do the baseline of Romain’s experiment. Once they were back to the station, Alba collected some blood from the crew members to extract serum and all crew members performed a salivary test for their studies. Maxime went into the Musk Observatory to learn more about how to use the instruments. The crew enjoyed a good time together at the science dome during the analysis.
Later, the crew came back to the main hab and they filled some forms for Loriane and Arnaud’s experiment on the psychological part of the simulation. To finish the day, the crew discussed their next steps and worked together on the daily reports.
