Mock Mars spacemen camp on Devon Island Nunatsiaq News

Would you like to take a spin in the MARS-1 Humvee, short for “High Mobility Multi-Purpose Wheeled Vehicle” or HMMVV? If you’re a researcher with Mars on your mind, you might end up driving the sturdy, 8,800-pound refurbished rover around the NASA Haughton-Mars Project camp on Devon Island. If plants interest you, then the project’s Arthur C. Clarke greenhouse, named after the science fiction writer and author of 2001: A Space Odyssey, may be just what you were looking for. Or would you prefer an EVA, that is some Extra-Vehicular Activity?
