Status Report From: SpaceRef Interactive, Inc.
Posted: Tuesday, June 1, 2010

image There are several webcams currently in operation on Devon Island in Support of the Arthur Clarke Mars Greenhouse located at the HMP Research Station. The greenhouse was installed on Devon Island in the summer of 2002.

These webcams update once a day, conditions permitting, through the greenhouse's autonomous systems using an MSAT satellite connection.

One webcam is pointed north at the greenhouse itself. The other webcam is located inside the greenhouse and is pointing south, showing the automated plant growing system.

Support for this webcam is provided by the Canadian Space Agency, Simon Fraser University, the Mars Institute and SpaceRef Interactive, Inc. SpaceRef donated the experimental greenhouse located at the HMP Research Station, Haughton Crater on Devon Island, Nunavut, Canada, in support of research conducted under the auspices of the Haughton Mars Project (HMP).

The HMP is an international interdisciplinary planetary analog field research program led by the Mars Institute.
