Sol Summary – November 16th

November 16, 2016

Sol Summary Report (SSR): Sol# 54

Person filling out report: Annalea Beattie

Summary Title:  TICK, TOCK.

Mission Status: On track

Sol Activity Summary: 

Quite a grey windy day today but a lovely pink sunset. Water is low now and we are very careful about what we use until the refill arrives. No EVA today. We have had a slow, steady comfortable day, working on our projects. Anastasiya wrote her journalist report and she mopped the floor. Jon and Anushree were in the lab, soil processing. Claude-Michel spent some time tending our indoor horticulture.

Alex worked on a new habitat design. Yusuke worked on his dome project, which he intends to assemble early next week. I had the best rest morning from everything, cleaned my loft upstairs and started writing a poem about drawing hypoliths.

After a leftover lunch, yoga then reports. And later this afternoon we all wrote our diary to Polina, (Institute of Bio-Medical Problems), now it’s a bit like writing to mum.

Pizza for dinner, thank you Yusuke for the hours spent making pizza dough and baking.
