Sol Summary – November 26th

November 26, 2016

Sol Summary Report (SSR):

Sol# 64

Person filling out report: Annalea Beattie

Summary Title: Dome Day EVA.

Mission Status: on track

Sol Activity Summary:

The mornings are cold now and there is ice outside in any puddles left over from the rain. We began our day with plant care and at the briefing after breakfast we scoped out what’s needed for today. There was one EVA today – finishing the assembly of Yusuke’s dome project outside (as well as moving the water tank and taking out rubbish). The Dome briefing was in the morning and in the afternoon the dome was built near the tunnel. This was physical and difficult for those in the spacesuits – Jon, Anastasiya, Yususke and Claude-Michel. They all worked hard and are now all very tired. Anu read and wrote. Alex worked on his SuiTT interface all day, (tomorrow is another day for the interface), for me all day and I re-interviewed Claude-Michel. This week I’m writing about his time here as Crew Engineer, smartpots, and habitability. HSO reports today on our health and wellbeing. We miss Jerry who was caught in a rat trap a couple of days ago and taken down to the dry creek bed where he was released. We hope he finds his parents. Something has changed now he has gone.

Anastasiya learnt fine motor skills in her spacesuit gloves, assembling Yusuke’s dome.

Plans for tomorrow: Day off.

Crew Physical Status: Very well.

Weather: Chilly.

Anomalies: There is an odd smell near Yusuke’s room.

It’s actually under the stairs we think.

We can’t find where it is, maybe it’s the pine tree or the borage or bell peppers.
