Space Art – Space Video: Martians by ZIA

Martians by ZIA

Who is that girl? Why it's Elaine Walker of ZIA wearing her Martians video spacesuit. If only NASA had spacesuits that stylish.

Space art is more than just inspiring pictures of planets, spaceships, and astronauts exploring a new frontier. Space art is also music and music videos. The group ZIA has just released a video with a message. Titled Martians, the song and video promote the exploration of space, specifically Mars. Quoting the band's founder Elaine Walker, ‘This video has a simple message, “Look! We could actually live here!”‘ I, for one, think that Elton John got it wrong when he sang that “Mars ain't the kind of place to raise your kids.”

The Martians video was filmed on the location of the NASA Haughton-Mars Project on Devon Island in the Canadian arctic. Devon Island is considered to be one of the most Mars like locations on Earth. The island is also home to the Haughton impact crater, a feature of considerable interest to the project's geologists. You can find out more about Devon Island at
