Mars on Earth: where it is and what it looks like

by Hitecher

Devon is one of the largest uninhabited islands in the world, located in the Canadian Arctic Archipelago. But this isn’t the only thing that makes it unique: the island’s special climate and landscape make it practically identical to Mars.

Devon is drawing ever-increasing attention from scientists in the space industry. The island’s extraordinary scenery makes it look a lot like the Red Planet. There’s no need to buy a plane ticket to see this unique landscape: the Google Street View team has taken a lot of panoramic shots of the island. You can check them out on the service’s website.

Scientists have also shot a video showcasing the work that has been done on Devon. They believe that Mars is very similar to Devon. In particular, they have identical craters and canyons. A group of scientists spent a week on the island: after this time, they felt like they were living on a different planet. Some members of the team got even more into character by walking around the island in spacesuits.
