Crew members of the Mars Arctic 365 mission (Phase 1) have begun their journey to the Flashline Mars Arctic Research Station (FMARS) in northern
Canada, departing earlier today from Idaho.

Weather permitting, the nine-person team plan to arrive on Devon Island on Wednesday to begin a two-week expedition to upgrade and refit the FMARS facility in preparation for the one-year Mars surface simulation, which is expected to begin in the summer of 2014.

Regular updates, including photos and videos, will be posted on the Mars Society's web site and Facebook page.
