Relations improve with Mars: project leader CBC

The leader of the NASA Haughton-Mars Project in Nunavut says the relationship with nearby residents is improving. Pascal Lee and the American space research organization have set up an experimental project at the Haughton Crater on Devon Island, where they are simulating conditions on Mars. For the last couple years, people in the nearby community of Grise Fiord have complained the Mars project was using Inuit-owned lands for experimental purposes. They’re concerned the project is disturbing the wildlife in the area. Pascal Lee says he plans to travel to Grise Fiord again in the fall to talk to the mayor and residents.
