Solemnity, which now looms over the horizon, but is there before you a few days you will see almost the slate roofs flying over the countryside, straw huts, feel the warm breeze of a heat out of steam in the wooded paths still bathed in sunlight, the leafy trees await you in a quiet autumn.
The summer was slow to appear, now reluctant to leave, just as if to greet you at all costs, you pass once before hibernation, in which, in turn, it will isolate itself to a time.
Your mission ends, and in the module, it must be the excitement, the last before the freeze-dried food meals real soon, a glass of vodka will be tense, and the smell of freshly cooked dish will awaken your nostrils sore for long periods without the olfactory surprise.
The crowded sidewalks waiting for you, and the undergrowth aspire to stretch your foot on their soil rocky, irregular to the cheers of the birds.
At least, that’s all I wish.
Now therefore receive these messages, along with the poster of 500 days, the last of the mission (sniff) …
Diego thank you to the passage for the realization of the button Mars 500, that I used for the production of this poster.
A great moment before the end is the birthday of Alexander, on this occasion, a small card on which all fans join the mission.
When you return to France, Romain, a last item will be taken to complete this mission, on this occasion, if your five companions want to spend a word to anyone after the mission, (message to be posted online at this time one), it would be great for the end, even a word scribbled (with translation J) on a sheet that I will be a photo section.
You have advanced the story, and your not the first Marsonautes who set foot on the red earth, far overshadow you, we remember before them, men spent 500 days of their lives to enable them and to make us dream.
Thank you to all of you who are the most important stone of a building, those that make the base. (Steve Légère)
