Sol 12
Summary Title: The last dance
Author’s name: Loriane Baes
Mission Status: 100%
Sol Activity Summary:
Sol 12 began and the Atlas mission came to an end. After one final morning EVA for Romain’s drone experiment, the crew gathered to do a live broadcast with a major Spanish television channel. During this exchange, Alba had the opportunity to explain the entire mission. At the end of the live broadcast, the crew crossed the entrance door together to immortalize the end of the simulation. An emotional moment where everyone applauded in recognition of the journey undertaken. Without delay, the biomedical team then took the crew car to drop the samples in Grand Junction for their shipment to Belgium. Meanwhile, the rest of the team conducted a second live broadcast with the Mars Society Belgium to explain the experiments conducted. The rest of the day was dedicated to the final cleanup and various reports while waiting for the biomedical team to return, followed by a group aperitif in nostalgia for this unique experience that has touched everyone’s lives. The end of a long journey has arrived today, but our exploration of space is only just beginning.
