Michael Anderson Memorial - Anderson Pass - Space Shuttle Columbia Inukshuk Memorials
The Anderson Pass Inukshuk Memorial was named after astronaut Michael Anderson. It was established on July 20, 2003 at a strategic location marking the transition between Von Braun Planitia, a wide plain extending just north of the NASA HMP Base Camp, and Vastitas Borealis, the vast region of mesa tops, hills, and valleys extending farther north. The Inuskshuk is located 2 miles northwest of Haughton Crater and is visible on the horizon from the NASA HMP Base Camp. Traverse teams exploring sectors north of camp use the Insukshuk as an important landmark.
The Anderson Pass Inukshuk was erected by NASA HMP Team members Joe Amarualik (Resolute Bay), Matt Bamsey (Canadian Space Agency), Keith Cowing (SpaceRef.com), Bill Fox (writer), Steve Hoffman (NASA JSC), and Pascal Lee (NASA HMP PI).
