Sol Summary – August 2nd

 In Sol Summary

Sol 14 (or 94)

Today we started a campaign of studying EVA operations. The first phase was a non-sim EVA. The weather was wild, after a sunny and calm morning but by the time we started it was blowing a gale with drizzle and occasional snow. The rain (and snow) stopped about half way through. We will try to go back with suits tomorrow if it isn’t raining.

Otherwise we did work round the hab, including processing samples and data collected during the EVA. This is a major consumer of time, experience shows us that for every hour spent on EVA 1.5 hours is spent planning, preparing for, an following up EVA activities.

Hoping for better weather tomorrow.
