Commander Report
05 May 2016 – Sol 4

Hello Everybody,

Greetings from Mars. Today four of us woke up very early because we helped people from NatGeo take pictures at sunrise. That was an unexpected experience because we saw the sun in front of us and all the beautiful desert that was MARS!

After that, we came back to the hub to have breakfast, cereal and milk for today. Orson and Luis were in charge of cooking and Celeste and Nolverth of cleaning. Marcos had his first EVA, Celeste helped him with the rover outside and Orson inside (in the hub). He proved the system of making holes in the surface of Mars and he discovered a problem in the charge of the remote control and he has to make some repairs.

I installed the little tank for my system and proved the functionality of all it, so was the first time that I collected information. Nolverth took information about the humidity, temperature and Ph of his plants and irrigate them. Jeel took the first samples of Celeste’s and Marcos’s uniforms and used that to isolate them in the petrifying media. Luis established the coordinates of the direction of the win, very useful for his model. We had a delicious dinner again, burritos with meat and rice. Definitely we have good chefs!

Later, some crew members took some classes of dance to relax. Jeel made the inventory of the first aid cabinet and Nolverth of the chemistry things. Luis found the best coordinates for the future EVA of Jeel. But the most important thing was that Orson find the electric generator and turn on it, because we didn’t have electricity. After that, we had our daily meeting and wrote the reports. Orson and Luis are making the dinner, soup and cookies.

Finally, we have a question to capcom about the internet. We want to know the meaning of these terms:

Any Time Data Allowance
Any time Data Refill Date
Any Time Data Allowance Remaining
Bonus Byte
Bonus Byte Remaining
Token Bytes Available
Allowance Resets
Regular Periods Ends

We had problems with the internet:

One day, we didn’t get the refill.
One day, we didn’t get internet at all.

It seems, we don’t have unlimited internet as the previous crews.

Shannon told us that we had unlimited internet from 2 am to 8 am, but that didn’t seem to work out. We would like to know if we really have unlimited access and when do we have it.

You should also receive an XO Report/Daily Summary and an Engineering Report.

Thank you.

Better force with you,
Commander Crew 169
