Science Report

Balwant Rai and Jasdeep Kaur Reporting

Saliva as diagnostic tool in Mars mission

Saliva samples were taken from all crew members (via Versi Sal 1 from Oasis Diagnostics) and preserved for further analysis (Stress markers, inflammatory markers and immunological markers). Salivary amylase and CRP were analyzed by bio-sensor and their levels were significantly higher.

EVA 37 Report

Jasdeep Kaur Reporting

EVA # 37, 14:45-16:00

Crew Members: Quentin Bourges, Jasdeep Kaur, Balwant Rai

Transit Mode: ATVs

Objectives: To build up a well co-ordinated rescue procedure for any crew member in medical distress condition(ENACTED by crew members).

Results: 3 crew members were selected. One crew member enacted to be in a shock condition(enacted by Jasdeep Kaur ), emergency physician started all emergency safety procedures and rescued the injured crew member carrying her on a stature to the Hab where further medical procedures were performed.

Lessons Learned: As per medical report

EVA 38 Report

Matthieu Ansart Reporting

EVA # 37, 14:45-16:00

Crew Members: Quentin Bourges, Matthieu Ansart, Rachel Dompnier

Transit Mode: ATVs

Objectives: Exploration of Mars

Results: We saw cows on the road and we tried not to disturb them.

Lessons learned : We are not alone in the desert. We have to be careful with our environment.

EVA 39 Report

Quentin Bourges Reporting

EVA#39: 5:40 pm to 6:20 pm

Crew members: Balwant Rai, Crystal Latham, Quentin Bourges

Location: 2 km west of the Hab

Transit mode: ATVs

Objective: Exploration of planet Mars

Results: We increased the knowledge of the area around the Hab, following the road.

Chef's Report

Rachel Dompnier Reporting

1a) Today was a non-cooking day

1b) Was today a special day celebrated at the main meal with special food or activity?


2) List the foods served at today's main meal (usually the evening meal), giving full names of each.

Rice with vegetables and burger.

Journalist Report

Crystal Latham Reporting

Crew 100B has been working hard during their last few days on Mars. Today was a day full of getting results and making conclusions. All of crew 100B diligently worked on finishing up their research projects today.

Today was a non-cooking day, but we had a very delicious lunch none the less. After an interesting turn of events yesterday, we are again trying to make some lime Jell-O. The crew commander thoroughly enjoyed the frozen Jell-O from yesterday; hopefully it turns out more jiggly tonight.

Today members of the crew went on EVA’s to explore the Martian surface more thoroughly and to take a special video. It seems cows are indigenous to both Earth and Mars, since there were a number of sighting while on EVA of the curiously calm creatures. Maybe we Marsonauts aren’t as alone as we thought we were…
