MDRS Crew 156
Another great day on Mars for crew 156! Following breakfest, our day started with a very interesting video lecture on medical considerations for ‘‘Off-Planet Medical Prepardness’’. Today’s EVA included some communication relaying and a simulated medical evacuation. Very challenging but load of fun! We then feasted on a pot-pourri lunch of beans, chips and dried bananas.
The highlight of the day came when we received a call just after lunch from American astronaut Kjell Lindgren! Kjell is curently on the International Space Station since launching July 22nd of this year. We had a chance to chat with him on his current mission and recent EVAs. He’ll hopefully keep an eye out and snap a picture of the MDRS!
With all of today’s excitement, we decided to relax a bit with some down time and a movie. Not sure how we’ll top todays day but tomorrow will surely hold new adventures!
