Support Requested: None, but note that this may be my FINAL Commander's Check-In from FMARS. I'd like to THANK YOU ALL for all the help and support you've given us over the past 4 months, as well as during the several months of planning leading up to the mission. We COULD NOT have accomplished our mission goals nearly as successfully without your help. Again, THANK YOU on behalf of the crew, to our incredible support team!
Miscellaneous: Our Mars Ed event with NASA Ames Academy went very well today. It was great to see Chris and Artemis, as well as several other friends, and the event went well. On Thursday the first 3 crew members will depart Devon for Resolute, with the remaining 4 departing on Friday. We will then fly to LA for the Mars Society Convention, via Ottawa.
