The MDRS rotation for our Crew (CIX) has come to an end, and it is time for all to move on and to look for other planets! The table below summarizes the Extra-Vehicular Activities (EVA) performed during the 2 week stay over the 2011 Christmas period (Dec 17-Dec 31). And yes, we had almost 54 [...]Crew 109 Journalist Report Day 13
Written by: Aster Stein. Here it is, my final report as crew 109 journalist. This was our last full day at the hab, the two past weeks have gone by so fast. Everyone here is happy to go back home, but there is of course a tiny part of sadness that we have to leave [...]MDRS EVA 22 Report: Skyline Rim
Today, David, Karon, and I did our final EVA by hiking 8Km to Skyline Rim and back. The three of us also did our first EVA together about 2 weeks ago.MDRS EVA 20 Report: North Pinto Hills
Today, Nicky and Aster stayed at the HAB all day performing scientific experiments. Victoria and I headed to the highest point on the North Pinto Hills. In the afternoon I tested the improved controls and the micro-camera of our Mini Mars Rover.Crew 109 Journalist Report Day 12
Written by: Aster Stein. The am-EVA team made an interesting discovery today. After a short drive, an innocent hike to a high peak in the North Pinto Hills. It went very well, but near the top of the hill they found a bone sticking out from the ground. It must have been there for a while [...]MDRS EVA 19 Report: Copernicus Highway
Today, Aster, Victoria and I traversed Mars Copernicus Highway. Our entire crew was also quite busy with experiments in the HAB ranging from water testing and time-lapse photography to soil cultures.Crew 109 Journalist Report Day 11
Written by: Aster Stein. The final stretch of crew 109′s stay at the MDRS is well under way. The biology team has finished their research on bacteria growth and tomorrow David will collect his last sample for his geology work. Nicky has spotted the first small green leaves in his plant growing project. Engineer Leandro has [...]MDRS EVA 16 Report: Up North
Today, Karon, Vicky and I headed up North towards the Martian Sheep Knolls. Back on the HAB I got to have some robotics manipulation practice time on my Mini-Mars Rover.MDRS EVA 15 Report: Martian landscapes around Olympus Mons
Today we had a great EVA with beautiful views of the Martian landscape. At times like this, the “Analog” simulation becomes very real, you feel in another planet.Crew 109 Journalist Report Day 10
Written by: Aster Stein. A very strange thing happened this morning… We must have gotten hit hard by the cosmic rays of a giant solar storm, because all of our alarm clocks proved ineffective at waking us up. We compensated by having a quicker breakfast. The weather was very nice, clear sky and all, but [...]

In electronics assembly, 60 to 70 percent of final defects occur during the stencil printing process (SPP), a stage of surface-mount technology for printed circuit board assembly. Researchers at Georgia Tech’s Center for Board Assembly Research (CBAR) have developed a new data-driven, closed-loop control technology that adjusts electronics assembly equipment parameters in real-time, resulting in [...]
