NASA has locked four volunteers to embark on the agency’s first one-year analog mission in a habitat to simulate living on Mars. The volunteers are expected to remain for 378 days while facing a range of challenges designed to anticipate a real-life human mission to the red planet.
“Four volunteer crew members are about to enter into our Mars simulated habitat for 378 days to support human health and performance research,” NASA’s Johnson Space Center wrote on Twitter before the 378-day mission began on Sunday.
The mission is taking place at the Johnson Space Center in Houston. The participants- research scientist Kelly Haston, structural engineer Ross Brockwell, emergency medicine physician Nathan Jones and U.S. Navy microbiologist Anca Selariu were locked into the virtual planet as part of a ground-based mission.
NASA has announced that astronauts on board the International Space Station (ISS) recover 98% of water from urine and sweat using the subsystems that are part of the Environment Control and Life Support Systems (ECLSS).
