If you've been to the northwest corner of Camp Mars, you may have come across our newest addition. There, you'll find a new beehive and its inhabitants, hundreds of honeybees. It is a fascinating community with new developments happening all the time..
It's no secret that honeybees are having a hard time these days, and that matters to all of us because they are an essential element of the food chain that feeds us. So a big thank you to Roger Devore and team who have brought us this very cool new aspect of life on Mars.
Here, in The Buzz, we will be keeping in touch with all of the developments of our new hive as the colony grows and thrives. And yes, there will be honey. Roger has kept a great journal and there are lots of photos and videos (some are pretty funny) and he is sharing this with us all.
Young bees training for longer-distance flights together near the hive.
Even bees need air-traffic control. Watch in slow motion.
Follow the progress of Camp Mars' bee colony below. This was built from the founders' journal entries so some are short and others are longer. To follow chronologically from the beginning, scroll to the end and read to the top.
