I have just posted four more blog entries from Juan Diego Rodgriguez-Blanco detailing the work conducted during this year's Arctic Mars Analogue Svalbard Expedition (AMASE), mostly concerning the testing of instruments that are being developed for future Mars missions, including Mars Science Laboratory, ExoMars, and, down the road, Mars sample return. As ever, his images of the Arctic landscape are spectacular. Enjoy!
August 27: Iceberg Chasing
September 5: Raman Spectrometry
October 6: Testing instruments for ExoMars and Mars Science Laboratory
October 6: Searching for Martian life... on Earth. And farewell, Svalbard!
That does it for this year's reports from AMASE; I look forward to the next northern summer's expedition!
