Dispatch from Mars Society Arctic Expedition – Robert Zubrin – July 27, 2001 Mars Society

The weather is getting worse. The forecast for today was rain, sleet, and fog, with snow possible tomorrow. Most of my crew needs to be on the 737 that will leave Resolute for Yellowknife Saturday afternoon – the next flight out is Wednesday. So all plans for a telerobot deployment EVA to the cliff across Devo Rock canyon were cancelled. Instead our program was to do our work today in the station with most of our bags packed, holding ourselves in readiness for rapid pullout to Resolute on the next Twin Otter flight, as it might prove impossible to get one on Saturday.
