Sol Summary – November 21st

November 21, 2016

Sol Summary Report (SSR):

Sol# 59

Person filling out report: Annalea Beattie

Summary Title: Rain and a day inside.

Mission Status: On track minus one day of bad weather!

Sol Activity Summary:

We were confined inside all day today as the rain came down and the desert floor turned to pink mud on the move so we did a solid day’s work indoors.

Claude-Michel wrote reports all day and adjusted plants, stopping only to work on the  new ATV. He and Yusuke removed the back of the seat to adjust it for the space suits. Yusuke worked on the plants as well, did the food inventory and analysed the GPS for documentation of EVAs. Anu spent most of her time in the lab lichen doing hypolith processing. Anastasiya and I both wrote journalist reports morning and afternoon with a short break for yoga. Alex worked on his hab design. Jon wrote his science post, did the photo report for today and cooked us Thai red curry (with pineapple).

That’s it for us, we are still busy now and for the next few hours.

Fingers crossed, the ground will dry out a bit overnight.
