A spring break trip to Mars The Citizen

Around this time of year college students gather in places like Daytona Beach, Panama City Beach or South Padre Island for a break from school. Several Georgia Tech students and Fayetteville resident Dr. Jan Osburg, a research engineer in the Aerospace Systems Design Laboratory at Georgia Tech, will be spending the next two weeks in Mars, or rather an area in Utah meant to simulate the first manned mission to Mars. The Mars Desert Research Station in Utah was built by the Mars Society.
