Dispatch from Mars Society Arctic Expedition – Robert Zubrin – July 7, 2001 Mars Society

I left Denver yesterday, heading north to take part in the Mars Society’s arctic expedition. What we will attempt to do is unique. For two months, six person crews of scientists and engineers will attempt to conduct a sustained program of field exploration in the 75 degree North polar desert of Canada’s Devon Island, while operating under the same operational constraints as a human expedition exploring Mars.
