Time Slot:



The purpose of this EVA is to find points where extra-terrestrial life could exist. These points were preselected by Japanese kids, based on meteorological and topographical prediction. EVA route is RS003, then RS001, then RS002 via ATV.


On each site, the crew made careful observations and surveyed natural features of the area around the points in more detail. We used a photogrammetry system for topographical field survey; it is composed of a single-lens reflex camera, a tripod, and a spherical panoramic tripod head, and takes at least 8 photos in each of the selected-points. We counted up plants and animals in a 1x1 square meter, and also took soil samples for IVA.


The EVA started with an engineering check by Heidi Beemer. Yusuke Murakami checked the ATVs and strapped the gear on them. Victor Luo attempted to scan a 3D model of the Hab using a sensor package.


We headed to RS003 waypoint via ATV, and then via walking, but undulation of the trail meant access to the point was violently tougher than we assumed from the topographic map. We completed observations on RS003 and started moving to RS001. But since the undulation is much harder than from ATV to RS003, we took much time than we expected. So we gave up on RS002 today before the time ran out.


These waypoints were preselected by Japanese kids using meteorological and topographical prediction just like NASA and they searched using satellite map on Mars. Learning from this EVA, a real field is much different and various from virtual world. Today’s EVA story is good experience for the kids, and also for us.


In addition, we had a couple of video cameras strapped to our helmets and got good documentation of the adventures.
