You don’t have to travel through the solar system to get to Mars. That’s because you can find a bit of the Red Planet on Devon Island in Nunavut’s High Arctic, about 200 kilometres south of Grise Fiord on Ellesmere Island. Many consider Devon’s Haughton Crater, a 20-kilometre-wide hole punched out by a meteor collision 23 million years ago, and its surrounding red rock formations—seemingly plucked from a Star Wars film—to be similar to what you’d find on a warmer Mars. So much so, there are many who believe NASA’s Rover shots from Mars are indeed shot on Devon Island— and they have produced many Youtube videos documenting the alleged hoax, prompting many semi-serious news stories with headlines like “The Wild Conspiracy Theory That NASA Is Faking Its Mars Rover Missions In Canada.”On these, you can see photos of rocks from a NASA Mars Rover shots which some say show a walrus bone or a lemming, as in this NASA photo.
