CSA Astronaut Jeremy Hansen Sets Out for Geology Field Training in the High Arctic
2013-07-17 - Jeremy Hansen via Twitter on July 17 - Perhaps these outcrops to south hold clues to what happened here. During landing, I saw chaos amongst the typically evenly layered rock in this area of the Arctic... Theory is I'm inside a 39 million year old meteor crater, but like any detective, I must look at the evidence from an unbiased perspective...
From July 16 to 25, 2013, Canadian Space Agency Astronaut Jeremy Hansen is in the High Arctic to learn methods and techniques for conducting geological fieldwork that could be applied during future missions to the Moon or an asteroid. Hansen is accompanying Western University's Dr. Osinski and his team from the Centre for Planetary Science and Exploration as they study the Haughton impact crater on Devon Island, Nunavut.(Credit: Canadian Space Agency)
