Dispatch from Mars Society Arctic Expedition – Robert Zubrin – July 15, 2001 Mars Society

The weather today was fair, with the prospect for better tomorrow and Tuesday. So we decided to seize the time to perform a reconnaissance EVA to try to find the best site for Vladimir’s geophone flute seismic sounding experiment. The crew was Vladimir, Katy, and I, and our target area to survey was the Von Braun Planitia, a large flat expanse stretching north from the hills overlooking the Lowell Canal.
