Prepping for the 2008 Field Deployment
In just over four months the Mars Institute along with our research partners from various organizations and space agencies will once again make the trek to the HMP Research Station in the high arctic for the 12th year of research activities by the Haughton-Mars Project.
As we get closer to deploying we'll keep you up to date on what specific activities we'll be doing this year. One added bonus event this year is the total solar eclipse happening on August the 1st. The HMP Research Station is directly in the path of totality so we should have an excellent viewing and research opportunity, weather permitting of course.
The Haughton-Mars Project will be using even more social media tools this year to keep you up to date. To start, we invite you to follow us on our HMP Research Station Twitter channel. Twitter is social micro-blogging service.
