Mission Day 1:

EVA #:1

EVA #:6
Est. time:2:30 hrs
Title:CG & Cargo Lander-Based Tasks, Weight A, Part B
Description:EVA team 2 will the remaining portion of the tasks and CGs not completed during EVA 5 (i.e. part A) for this simulated suit weight.

Mission Day 4:

EVA #:7
Est. time:2:00 hrs
Title:Rover & Crew Lander-Based Tasks
Description:EVA team 1 will exit the habitat and don a portable life support system (PLSS) backpack and add weights to simulate wearing a spacesuit on the lunar surface. The EVA team members will perform rover and crew lander-based tasks to include airlock and ascent module ingress and egress, transferring small payloads from the surface (sea floor) to a lander deck, uploading a simulated incapacitated crewmember to a lander deck, ingressing a simulated incapacitated crewmember to the rover, airlock, and ascent module, and rover hatchway translations.
