Arthur Clarke Mars Greenhouse Crops Continue to Thrive on Devon Island SpaceRef Interactive

Three weeks after the last humans departed from NASA Haughton Mars Project Base Camp on Devon Island, the Arthur Clarke Mars Greenhouse continues to operate – by itself. Its operations are monitored and controlled via satellite by researchers in Canada and the United States. Inside, a small crop of lettuce plants continues to grow. The two webcam images shown above demonstrate the rate at which the lettuce crop is growing. Taken just 5 days apart, all plants show a signficant increase in size.
