For the last several days the weather has been good enough to allow us to get nine Twin Otter flights to the HMP Research Station from Resolute Bay. Five flights went over on Thursday ferrying cargo and the following participants from the Canadian Space Agency, Dr. Jean-Marc Comptois, Matt Bamsey and Tom Graham as well as PJ Attagootak (Resolute student), Sarah Huffman (Mars Institute) and Alex Lasslop (CNES).

Yesterday four Twin Otter flights made it to the HMP Research Station ferrying the bulk of the remaining cargo we had as well as the following participants: From the Canadian Space Agency; Alain Berinstain, Richard Giroux, Philip Neron, Lydia Calhoun, Marc-Andre Lavoie, Perry Johnson-Green and from the University of Florida, Rob Ferl and Anna-Lisa Paul and from Simon Fraser University, Colin Russell.

This brings the number of staff and participants at the HMP Research Station to 25. We are on schedule and anticipate getting the research activities started in earnest within the next couple of days.
