We checked potential issues with the habitat after the radiation growth, but the habitat electronics looks fine, and it is better than we thought yesterday. I went for a walk today, with Dorota.

The lander carrying scientific experiments crashed nearby the habitat during the landing… we had no time to react, as the automatic landing procedure failed seconds from the touchdown… It was too late for taking manual control over the lander. The data records were passed
Lunar Standard Time (LST): 50-07-18 20:18 Dorota and Grzegorz opened the airlock hatch at 9.36 LST, which marked the first EVA (Extravehicular activity) during the LE-1. They did terrain mapping near the habitat, and it took them 32 minutes. For us, it was also the time for testing EVA procedures and equipment, which took us

On Tuesday, August 15, 2017, starts the first Polish lunar analog mission in the first Polish space habitat Lunares in Pila. The mission is called Lunar Expedition 1, and it will last two weeks, during which six analog astronauts will simulate the operation of the base on the Moon. The main purpose of the mission
Habitat Lunares is a simulated space base. It’s the only object of its kind in Europe, where conditions of the future base on the Moon or Mars will be simulated. The habitat is located at the former military airport in Pila. It will be opened on July 29, 2017. Four missions are planned for 2017.
