Arctic Greenhouse May Lead to Farms on Mars CBC

Astronauts visiting Mars in the future may be able to look forward to a fresh salad when they arrive, thanks to Canadian research.
Lettuce, radishes and beets have been planted in a remote Arctic greenhouse, where researchers are learning how to grow crops without human contact in an environment that can’t normally support edible plants.
Alain Berinstain, the Canadian Space Agency scientist in charge of the project, said no other greenhouse is designed to operate autonomously like the Arthur Clarke Mars Greenhouse on Devon Island in Nunavut.

Canadians petition for Mars science lab CBC

If funding comes through, Canada could play a major role in NASA’s next mission to Mars. NASA is leading an international space race to find signs of water on the red planet. Two rovers are equipped to prowl the Martian surface searching for evidence of past life. Robotic landers offer a chance to scour the surface, and the space agency’s landing plans for 2009 are bigger and bolder.

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.
