Eva Report

Eva Number:
3
Eva Date:
2014/12/04
Time Slot:
laterAM
Purpose:
Measure vertical profiles of soil moisture, two sites "Shrub" and
"Barren". Continuation of geophysical soil moisture project started on
EVA1.
Narrative:
In the beginning of the EVA Crew Engineer Victor Luo did the
engineering checks after which we filled up the outside water tank. XO
Heidi Beemer did the HABcomm.

We proceeded with ATVs to the “Shrub” site 2,6 km from the Hab by
road. This time we did establish comms with the Hab from the “Shrub”
site. On site, we did two vertical profiles (=pits) of soil moisture
measurements. The depths of these profiles were around 30 cm.

From the “Shrub” site we returned back towards the Hab. We passed the
Hab and did a fast reconnaissance pass to Gregory Leonard’s field site
about 300 meters South of the Hab for tomorrows scheduled EVA.

The next stop was on the “Barren” site, where we did two vertical
profiles of soil moisture measurements. After these measurements we
drove to the Hab.

After returning to outside of the Hab, we still had 30 minutes of EVA
time left. Crew Engineer Victor Luo used this time to do 3D scans of
the surroundings.

Equipment worked fine and radio comms were mostly working. In the end
of the EVA Crew Scientist Juho Vehviläinen had some issues with sweat
getting into his eyes. We will try to mitigate this issue on the
subsequent EVAs.
