Report compiled by Julielynn (HabCom) and Matteo, and typed by Matteo

Coordinates of WPI are unavailable because the UAV is still
out there and we have yet to recover its local telemetry.

Matteo's note: We lost a UAV, which is a good trade for a crewmember
(that's what UAVs are for!). May attempt retrieval tomorrow. Medivac
went well, using a robotic stretcher is much easier than using an ATV
and

a manual stretcher like we did today. I had a hard time with helmet
fogging, and sweat got in my eye meaning I had to do the latter half
of the EVA one-eyed. Carrying Igor inside is generally doable by one

person if necessary in Earth gravity, it will be very much doable in
Mars gravity. Triage went overall well.

A "claw" I built was mounted on my spacesuit glove (right pinky
finger, inside) and tested. It makes fiddly work like releasing velcro
or opening ziplog bags easier and, crucially, it allows deploying duct
tape

from rolls without using up any of its adhesive! I will generate a 3D
file and give them to Julielynn for printing. It does not get in the
way of other work. I'd like to call it a velociraptor claw since its

positioning is similar to that of the dinosaur's, and velociraptors
are awesome. Alternatively, we can call it a sicilian claw in
reference to an old Sicilian custom. Suggestions accepted!
