Students prepare for future mission to Mars BYU NewsNet

BYU students will soon have the opportunity to live on Mars–a simulated version, at least. Student researchers are working with the Mars Society developing and executing experiments to prepare astronauts for a future voyage to Mars. “The Mars Society’s goal is to establish human presence on Mars soon. When humans get to Mars, we want BYU to be recognized for what we did in getting people there,” said Doug Archer, a junior majoring in physics and a study participant.
