I intercept a dispatch.


Today Resolute, Tomorrow Devon!

I've arrived in Resolute, Canada and look forward to flying over to Devon Island in the morning. Our expedition on Devon will be almost one week, which is about how long a space mission to the EA space station would last.

While the two environments are certainly different from each other, they both force the crews to adapt to the different environments and to conduct operations accordingly! Both environments are also remote, each with one big antenna to connect the crews to the world.
