Mars Simulation Sites

The Mars Analogue Research Station (MARS) Programme has two sites used to simulate the conditions of living and working on Mars. One is on Devon Island in the Arctic; the other is in the desert in Utah. Participants have a strict protocol of Mars simulation conditions they follow as they test equipment and develop procedures for Mars exploration. Link ~via Dark Roasted Blend

When are they going to open the 'experience' up to the paying public..?
I'd pay to have a play - of course, I'd happily head to Mars on a one way ticket as well, but that's just me...

Never underestimate the power of the human mind to rationalize even the most stupid and useless activities.

//personally, I think of my Neatorama sessions as research into abnormal psychology.

Here's where they got the ideal for those "Mars Space Helmets":

I remembered instantly seeing them before - and I think several REALLY cheap sci-fi movies used them too....

Glad to be of service, Vonskippy! And Denita: Bwahahaha!

Creamer is thinking that when he gets back, he'll have a little chat with the travel agent that booked this "vacation."
