Person filling out report: Annalea Beattie

Summary Title:  Double EVA Day.

Mission Status: on track

Sol Activity Summary:

Two EVAs today. A special day for Yusuke as he, Claude-Michel and Anastasiya set up the first phase of his Dome Project. This is his initial trial at understanding how the dome as a shelter can be assembled in space suits (two hours and twenty minutes) and More on this exciting project tomorrow.

Jon and I went on an EVA, firstly checking current directions and timing relations in crossbedding in paleo-channels, (next week I will drawing diagrams of this geology in the spacesuit) and secondly road-testing the new, all electric EVA (which feels to me like a golf cart but is very fancy, very comfortable).We walked two kilometres along ridges, checking out the channels and losing calories from yesterday’s thanksgiving. Then the sole came off my boot. Bummer.

Anu spent time in the lab, Claude-Michel was interviewed by me for and he tried to complete reports but is now cooking nachos pre-The Expanse. Alex wrote reports all morning, cooked lunch and in the afternoon was Hab -Com for us all, earning the big dollars he is paid. Early night. We are tired today.
