If you were thinking that we're the only team doing cool research in Ny-Ålesund, then (although we might be flattered) you'd be wrong. Here's a cool article (Looking for the Coolest forms of Life on Earth) from ScienceDaily about a team of UK scientists using glaciers in the area to simulate what conditions life might have to deal with on Mars. They're even keeping a blog, so if you need your Ny-Alesund fix after we're gone, you can get it here.
