The main objective of this EVA was to perform the engineering check. However the team decided to take advantage and search for location around the hab that could be suitable for PED experiment. This EVA had 3 crew members and no ATV was used.
 
The crew started by performing the engineering check. The crew forgot to place the garbage in the airlock and therefore the the Hab Com had to re-pressurize the airlock, place the garbage in and de-pressurize again. The crew proceeded for a search for locations suitable for the PED experiment, in a walking distance, around waypoint 166 and 167. The crew did not find any suitable locations.
The crew returned to the hab, disposed of the garbage and finished the EVA.
