Today I leave for Mars! I will be working for 4 days at the Mars Desert Research Station. I will keep you posted. Http://mdrs.marssociety.org 
MDRS is one of two Habs maintained by The Mars Society. Its goals are to serve as a Mars analog environment for field operations, science, and research in preparation for human missions to Mars. The Habs (MDRS and FMARS) will generate public support and interest for sending humans to Mars.
