Sol 2 Activity Summary: This morning we wake right at the right time, indeed, it we had just the time to make some coffee before the power plant broke. When the backup power generator had been start, we were told about the terrorist attack in Brussels. This was a shock for all of us. We have taken an hour to hear about our families, since some of us come from Brussels, to be sure that everyone was ok.

After that, four members went in EVA.  During the afternoon we have try the 3D printer. The first try did not work, the team will test the 3D printer again tonight.


We are saddened by the terrorist attack and we are addressing our condolences to all the families of the victim. Despite this attack, we will remain on Mars until the end of our mission.
