Plans for Tomorrow:
  • A 1 hour in-sim EVA near the Hab drilling into mudstone, and 
  • A 2 hour out-of-sim EVA at location UTM 12S 512577mE 4244785mN. 
    The second EVA is doing science, surveying and collecting geological samples some 10 miles from the Hab. We cannot do this in-sim or rather the focus is on finding samples as efficiently as possible. We will be drilling for samples in Mudstone in-sim in the first EVA.
