Commander's Report

Tom Caillouet Reporting

We have finally made it to Mars. After being greeted by Crew 100B and

being given a thorough debrief, we seem to have a full red planet to ourselves. We've spent the entire afternoon unpacking, organizing, and

cleaning for our stay. Tonight, we continue preparation of our experiments and sorting our massive food stores. Tomorrow, we begin our first full day on 'Mars.'

and any times you needed to turn the generator on/off):

1 generator run

Previous crew had written down "Checked by DG" for 'Battery Charge Level'. Will the battery voltages below below that be given by DG, or is that something else I need to know how to check? If DG does not come by, should this be left blank?

·       ATV Oil Quantity (# of Quarts in storage): 6 quarts on the

I left this section as the last crew left it. Are the generator oil quantities fine to leave to DG? Where is the Car Oil?

Journalist Report

Christine M Redmond

Today crew 101 landed on Mars! We were greeted by crew 100B . Each 101 crew member broke off to be brief by their respective counterpart crew member on 100B. After receiving our briefing from crew 100B the two crews got together for a group picture outside the Hab. Crew 100B handed over the keys to the Hab, wished us luck and were ready to make their return trip to earth!

Crew 101 had a busy afternoon planning and sorting the food we will be eating for the next two weeks. We broke up the afternoon with a nice hike with a beautiful view.

Crew 101 is very excited for a great mission!
