Sol Summary – August 8th
Sol 20 (or 21)
Still, chilly morning with clouds, but good for an EVA. After lunch we suited up and did one of the operation trial EVAs. The spot we chose for this was to the SW of the hab along Haynes ridge, and tracked down the side of the crater. We collected and documented fossils, including some very nice stromatolites, and biological communities. Our survey terminated in some large mounds on the lower part of the crater sides. These proved to be masses of impact ejecta.
All up we walked 3 km and trudged home weary but satisfied, with our bags full of rocks.
This evening we had a hilarious time discussing Yusuke’s darkest secret. No, we won’t share it. And nobody will imagine what it is.
Watching episode 11 of “The Expanse” tonight!
