The EVA started on time. The locations for this EVA were chosen in order to study different kinds of geologic structures and the methods by which they were created. The many different colors of rock provide clues as to what kind of mineral resources could be available in this region of Mars. Crew members returned safely to the Hab and all equipment was accounted for.
