Video: Pascal Lee on the Haughton-Mars Project

The Haughton impact crater site on Devon Island, High Arctic, is one of the most Mars-like places on Earth. Since 1997, the Haughton-Mars Project (HMP) has been conducting science and exploration research at the site, and established the HMP Research Station, now the largest privately operated polar research station in the world. Geology and astrobiology investigations have led to the formulation of the “Mars, Always Cold, Sometimes Wet” Model. Dr. Pascal Lee will describe how Haughton is being used to conduct exploration investigations which are helping pave the way towards the first human mission to Mars.
