Hello Amethyst here! Today was a pretty intense day due to the fact we did so many test runs.. Me and Alex would set up and run the rover, and also Marshal and Gilbert worked on the controls and fixing the problems with the mission. In the middle of the one of the runs, I somehow forgot to put the module in... Which was super embarrassing and just super sad. We also figured out many flaws with the program, and tried to fix them. For example, in one of the missions the rover never came back to base which was a really bad problem during our run, so we had to run out and bring it back. The programmers fixed this problem, so the rover comes back to base, which was a good thing because it was super tiring running and dragging the rover back. During the run our goal was to finish a couple missions like, module, extraction, space travel, and solar panel array. We did accomplish some of these missions, but always somehow failed module, which was pretty stressful. Tomorrow we will, for sure, try to perfect our programs, and make sure to have one "successful" run. Talk to you guys later, peace! -Amethyst
Hey guys and girls its Diana, today we wanted to make an arm using gears so that we can help that weirdo Gerhard. What me, Jarred, and Marshall were thinking was if we make a huge gear train that was a drop on for our rover we can help Garhard. Its been almost 4 hours sense the air chamber got locked I don't even know how he hasn't ran out of oxygen but what ever. When we were first making the gear train we thought that we can use a pulley type of system so that we don't have to waste a bunch of resources because they are scarce in these barren lands. Anyways we just placed the pulleys and connected them together with fine silk bands... nah just kidding we can't afford to send that kind of stuff into space, we used rubber bands. All we need to do is to make the arm now which we think will be super easy, but we are saving that for the next day. OH WAIT! we have to have a training tomorrow to I guess Garhard will have to wait... whatever. Anyways Diana out see ya next time.
Hi guys, Marshall here. Today we were mainly working on our rovers. By the end of today we wanted a module to be added to our space station, but we didnt know which rover was capable of completing the task. So we split up into 2 teams and each team was assigned a rover to work with. The groups were Amethyst, Chad, Marshall, and Gilbert who were working on Frameless, and Astro, Alex, Jared, and Diana worked on Bumble Bee. The attachemnt builds we mostly striaghfoward, but programming was stressful. Marshall and Gilrbert were working on the programms for both rovers. We eventually got it, and now we have way more space, whcih hopfully means we can get some new and improved spacesuits. The rest of the team memebrs worked on the attachments for module. I think thats all I wanted to say, so Good bye, stay strong, Marshall out.
Woah, I'm actually back? Hmmm seems like it's been years, and I'm pretty sure the rest of the crew doesn't even remember me.. I'm not sure how long it's been since I've seen everyone because I have been stuck in space, just floating around, doing nothing! Eventually I came back, I'm not even sure how, but at least I'm back. Now that I think of it, I haven't slept in a while, eaten, and I'm pretty sure I got a lot of exposure to radiation. WAIT! I was just thinking about my oxygen.. How did I not run out oxygen!?!?! The oxygen tanks in our spacesuits only last 6 - 8.5 hours. I SWEAR, I HAVE SUPER POWERS! Guys I could've died, I would've been just a dead body floating around space, but no I have super powers, so I'm better than all of you.
Oh well, anyways, my name is Amethyst, my first day back wasn't anything super special, but I went straight to work since there is still so much to do. I don't even think they noticed I was there.. Marshall, Gilbert, and I were working on finding ways to fix our program on the double sensor stop, which was super stressful. We haven't gotten the program exactly right but we are trying different methods. Today's program was inspired by Builderdude35 (I think Marshall has like a secret obsession of him..) but Builderdude ended up failing us, the program wasn't even that close to working (no hard feelings builderdude). Other than that, Diana, Chuck, and Jared worked on making attachments for our two "spacecrafts" or "rover" or "robot" hmm.. But anyways they made different attachments, and our goal is to make a "working" attachment for the extraction mission by tomorrow. Oh and can't forget about these two, Alex and Astro contributed to everything basically, at times they were helping with the programming and at times they were working on building. Aren't they such good workers? Okay, well I think I said everything I wanted to say for today.. So I guess it's time to sign off. See ya later - Amethyst
