We are all grateful for the airlift support of the Air National Guard's 102d Rescue Squadron, part of the 106th Rescue Wing based out of Long Island, NY. We'd like to thank in particular Col.
Robert Landsiedel and his crew for their support and patience in Resolute Bay as they waited for the HMP-2010 field team to pull out in its entirety. We overnighted in Vancouver then went on to Moffett Field, CA. By now everyone has made it all the way home!
Please keep following MarsOnEarth.org for more updates, science reports, photos and videos in the next several days.
