Commander's Report

Ivo Ferreira Reporting

This is Crew 100A, sigining in.

This is our first day at the MDRS and it was an hectic one.

After our trip from Grand Junction we stopped by the Bull Mountain Market to pick up the food items.

We were received at the MDRS at about 1:30 pm by the other team which gave us a very detailed description of the MDRS regarding the power, safety, logistics, ATVs, space suits, Musk observatory, etc.

Romain is the Executive Officer which will help me organizing the team and setting the logistics necessary to schedule each experiment.

The Engineering team was defined (Kévin and Audrey) which will be responsible for the material, the engineering report and "keeping everything running".

Ayako is our medical and safety officer. Jeffrey is the chief support engineer which will help the engineering team, support some experiments and do some astronomy.

Crew 99 left us at around 4:15 pm after some trial ATV runs, and a short walk to a "Dino" site near-by.

We then received Dr. Marc Griofa which explained us, during 3:00 hours, everything we will need to know about the CASPER experiment related to sleep patterns. After that we made the inventory of the food items and cooked our first dinner.

We had a great first day at Mars!

P.S. - Sorry for the delay, I now know about the logistics and will deliver my report before 8 pm.
