Mission Status: Today, the crew familiarized themselves with operations of the Hab and planning EVA. Safety trainings from HSO and Crew Engineer were the highlights of the day.
Sol Activity Summary: The day started on a very positive note, with bright weather greeting our morning. We got off to a team debrief. Our crew commander put us through the day’s schedule. At 09.30, our Martian crew welcome a guest from the Australian Mars Society, Peter Nikoloff on board the MDRS. The crew commander and engineer showed our guest around the hab and got him acquainted with our research projects. Afterwards, we set out to clean up the hab and prepare our workstations. Our HSO took us through safety drills, explaining what to do in case of emergencies during EVAs and lab operations. We tried on our suits and took some pictures and planned SOL 2 EVA.
