HMP Research Station Field Update August 5, 2005

Status Report From: Haughton-Mars Project (HMP)
Posted: Sunday, August 7, 2005


After an initial run of bad weather at the beginning of the field season the last two weeks have provided us with good to great conditions at times to conduct our research. Communications by Internet are now offline for the rest of the field season. At this time 14 people are scheduled to leave the Research Station today and tomorrow leaving a small group for the last 4 days before the Research Station is closed for the year.

We still have several photo reports that will be put online over the next couple of weeks for activities in the last week. This includes another report on the Hamilton Sundstrand space suit as well as the successful Mars-1 Humvee Rover traverse to the gullies.

The Arthur Clarke Mars Greenhouse continues to operate in autonomous mode and is sending back data daily including an image per day from each of the webcams.
