October 19, 2016

Person filling out report: Anastasiya Stepanova

Summary Title: Pressurize Exploration Vehicle protocol test

Mission status: Operations are nominal

Sol activity Summary: The EVA crew went to Box Canyon Quarry using the habitat car and tested how it will be like on Mars. It is hard to get into the PEV in space suits, the car is too small and the suits are too big. The test failed. The rest of the crew was busy working on their projects: trying to make 3D printer work and beta version of SSUIt is operational. Physical activities, such as yoga, punctuated the evening. Looking forward to get the news about Sciaparelli lander.

Anomalies in work:  No

Weather: Sunny, no wind, mild temperature

Crew Physical Status: Good

EVA: Gypsum, lichen sampling and hypolith finding
