posted Sep 15, 2011, 1:26 PM by James Burk

The Mars Society is pleased to announce that plans for the 11th field season at the Mars Desert Research Station (MDRS) are moving ahead rapidly.  The upcoming field season is now planned to run from December 3, 2011 through May 6, 2012.


Volunteer slots are open for participation as a crew member at the MDRS in Utah.  Crew members will be required to pay for their own transportation to and from Grand Junction, Colorado, and also pay a $1,000 participation fee (reduced to $500 for students) to cover station expenses.


Those interested in participating in the upcoming MDRS field season should send their applications to: mdrsvolunteers@aol.com by September 30, 2011 in order to be considered.  Applications received prior to the September 30th deadline will receive special consideration for the earlier crew slots.


Both individual applications and group applications of up to an entire crew (6 people) will be considered.
