UB students to “explore Mars” in Utah University at Buffalo

UB doctoral student Brent Garry has always wanted to go to Mars, but for now he’ll settle for Utah. Since April 3, he and Abby Semple, another UB doctoral student, have been part of a small team that is simulating the living and working conditions on Mars by donning space suits, exploring the geology of the very “Mars-like” canyons of Utah and essentially living in and working out of a two-story tin can similar to a spaceship.
