  An impeccable, red-like canyon with water - perhaps the entrance from the surrounding sea - at its base.

Here is one of the wonders of Mars on Devon Island in the High Arctic, part of the new, short, Google documentary about the NASA Haughton-Mars project. This terrestrial canyon, named after the scientist by the Astronaut Canyon, was carved by glaciers and reminds some of the canyons of the tributaries to Jude Hasmys on Mars.

The mission of the crew to Mars may be far away, but researchers, however, are preparing for the preparation. One of the best ways to prepare is to train scientists and test new technologies in some of Earth's most similar places on Mars, simulating the experience as much as possible [1

9599009]. The Mars Institute and the SETI Institute have jointly announced a new partnership between Google and the NATO project within the framework of the Haughton-Mars project (HMP) to achieve the goal of exploring Mars and understanding this society. Their focus is Devon Island in Nunavut, Canada, in the Arctic. Devon Island is one of the most marsh-like places that can be found on Earth and the only continuous continuous barrier zone of the rocky, polar desert on Earth. The announcement was accompanied by the launch of new public information products, including Street View imagery; Excursion to Google Earth, which highlights the geology of Devon Island, similar to Mars (requires a Chrome browser); and a short documentary shot in the Haughton-Mars Humor Project with Google Pixel 3. Want an example? The main events of Google Street View include:

She illustrates – by virtue of the actual story – how the Devon Island looks like a "wonderful desolation" of Mars.

According to Pascal Lee, HMS Director at Ames Research Center:

We are delighted to have this new partnership with Google Project Haughton-Mars and the release of these products. They allow us to share some of the wonders of the world with the world, similar to the place and fieldwork we do.

Google captured its image in August 2018 when it took part in the summer campaign of the HMP 2018 as a new partner in education and the public.

The team also produced a 10-minute documentary entitled "Mars on Earth: A Visit to Devon Island," shot in HD using the Google Pixel 3 Smartphone. The film gives an overview of the work of the Haughton-Mars pilot project (HMPRS) during the 10 days The documentary also includes research on flight tests and research on NASA's Mars Mercury Reusable Flyer (MERF), an experimental Mars exploration aircraft, developed at the NASA Research Center in Langley, Virginia. As Katya Minitsenko, the team leader of Google noted:

We were very enthralled by the opportunity to see the work of planetary scientists on the island of Devon. Now, we're excited to share the results of our time on the world's largest uninhabited island with Google users.

According to Bill Diam, President and CEO of SETI Institute:

This is a new partnership between Google and the NASA Haughton-Mars project, one of many Innovative research projects at the SETI Institute is an excellent example of how private industry and non-profit organizations can be united to promote science, intelligence, education and the public. Stay tuned in the near future.

The Haughton-Mars project, by the way, is based on the Haughton Crater of Devon Island, a 12-mile (20 km) meteorite crater and the surrounding landscape. The leading international research project of the Mars analogue, HMP has conducted numerous field studies during its 22-year history. Places such as Devon Island, or the Atacama Desert in Chile, are closest to Mars, as extremely dry conditions on Earth, almost without vegetation, precipitation or other humidity. Therefore, they are ideal places to carry out experiments and prepare for future human missions.

Outcome: The partnership between NASA and Google provides new and innovative ways to not only test for the human exploration of Mars, but also share adventure with the general public.
