A month on ‘Mars’: Living on the EDGES


Science can be a cold, uncaring partner. Oh, your relationship may start out warm and fuzzy, but while your passion for discovery and truth may endure, science may turn its back on you and say, “find your own path … I’m busy.” 

The team members from MIT’s Haystack Observatory that I’ve been sharing the Haughton-Mars Project (HMP) camp with for the past three weeks might need some science couples therapy when they get back to Boston: John Barrett, a scientist and software developer at Haystack; Rigel Cappallo, a postdoctoral research associate there; and Jason Soo Hoo, Haystack’s IT manager and the nominal field Principal Investigator for this deployment. All are working together on the EDGES experiment.
