Commander Report
01/25/2014
Prepared by Ashley Dale

We are now just about a week into our expedition, and things have really settled down. Outside of 
research, the daily routine has been established and very little needs to be said for things to be 
done. Not that little is said, here – some of these nutters won’t shut up! The dynamics are healthy 
within the group and with mission support. We are all in good humour. Everyone is getting on nicely 
with their research, and it looks like we’ll be getting a decent amount done while here. We are all 
motivated and invigorating the drive in one another. The only real stressors we all face are the 
strict data upload/download restrictions and, of course, time.
 
Tonight, post-CapCom, we have some outreach to do (answering Mars-related questions with a video 
package for the Open University) and then a mediation session (soon, hopefully, with a range of head-
mounted EEG scanners). Tomorrow morning, some of us are going to get up early to catch the ISS going 
over – a great view with this high-altitude desert night sky. I wonder how long until there will be 
the equivalent orbiting Mars.
