12 N 518524 4249129 (sandstone/hoodoo)
ATV: 1 – 2 – 3
Time: 10:00 am depart – 11:00 am return
Purpose: Geology EVA. Expose students to doing geology field work while staying “in-sim.” Follow a predetermined path and stop at a specific waypoint to make observations or complete various tasks.
EVA departure was slightly delayed due to the arrival of the San Francisco Film Society crew. During the EVA, we examined pieces of sandstone and used a Brunton compass to obtain the strike and dip of the cap rock on a hoodoo located at the site. Everyone was able to learn and demonstrate how to use the compass. The SFFS crew filmed us doing this and also interviewed us “in-sim” through the use of HAM radios.
