"Once again I am headed north to Devon Island, the home of the Haughton-Mars Project. This is a place many have come to call "Mars on Earth" for its similarity to terrain on Mars. Due to this similarity - and a number of other factors (including its isolation) a wide range of scientific and engineering activities are conducted here in an effort learn how to live on other world such as the Moon - and Mars - and perhaps elsewhere."
Editor's update: I am on Devon Island. Arrived around 9:15 am CDT. Matt Reyes arrived at 11:00 am. Leroy Chiao is in transit to Ottawa and ... my iPhone (the northernmost iPhone on Earth) works just fine here in WiFi mode.

"In July 2007 several hundred students will get look over the shoulder of space researchers at a remote research base in the Canadian arctic. The place: Devon Island, a place many call "Mars on Earth". Our team will visit Devon Island to conduct 5 days of webcasts and other instructional activities spanning the period of 16-20 July 2007."
