Since 2002, in the deserts of southeast Utah, the Mars Society has conducted simulated voyages to the Red Planet. Portland's own David Levine, a Hugo-award winning science-fiction writer, just returned from two weeks at the Mars Society's desert research station, "where he lived and worked with five others in 23-foot-wide cylindrical habitat with a failing electric generator and nonfunctioning showers."

Read his interview with the Oregonian here.

At first I was going to say I would never go that far out of my way to do something related to my writing, but i am going to spend three days in September at a police academy training course that they are opening up just to writers.

At least I don't have to wear a space helmet.
