Project Overview:
In order to help develop key knowledge needed to prepare for human Mars exploration, and to inspire the public by making real the vision of human exploration of Mars, the Mars Society has initiated the Mars Analog Research Station (MARS) project. The Flashline Mars Arctic Research Station is the first station in this project.

The Crew:
The crew, chosen from volunteers from around the world, will serve a 4-month rotation in the Flashline Mars Arctic Research Station on Devon Island beginning in early April of 2007. During this time they will employ the Mars-like polar desert of Canada's Devon Island to experiment with techniques for the human exploration of Mars.
