Marc Boucher’s Personal Journal Mars Society

One interesting happening at the habitat during the day was a test of the Hamilton Sundstrand Mars prototype suit. Peter Kinsman of Hamilton Sundstrand put the suit on in the habitat then EVA’d to the surface for a leisurely stroll followed by a drive on the “rover” (ATV). The suit is here as part of the Haughton-Mars Project. The test is the first in an effort to explore future collaborations between the Mars Society and the NASA led Haughton-Mars Project.
