Devon Island Camera Feeds

Keith Cowing alerted me that these two links will show updated images of the Arthur C. Clarke greenhouse which was set up on one of his most recent expedition to the HMP. The photos are updated once every 24 hours. Ignore the dates on the clocks, which stopped over the winter:

I found these three webcams that update once a minute.

Smile... The COTU is watching.

Would the plan be to place greenhouses on the equator of Mars or have a northern and southern outpost and migrate?

I don't know, but my guess is that the sun angles at the poles would make it better to have the greenhouse near the equator. The bottom line is that you would want the greenhouse where your base is located!
