Bowie Base One
Seventeen months into the mission, the Tenth Doctor arrived on-site. Six of the crew members were infected by the Flood. Captain Brooke initiated Action 5 on 21 November 2059, destroying Bowie Base One in a nuclear explosion. There were only three survivors, plus the Tenth Doctor.
The mission included the United Kingdom, United States of America, Russia, Germany, Turkey, South Korea, Lithuania, and Australia. The flags of all of these countries (Lithuania's upside-down) but Pakistan were seen on the wall of the control hub. (Pakistan's flag was not shown but the base doctor was a Pakistani national) Mission Control was based in Houston, Texas. (TV: The Waters of Mars)
