Want to Go to Mars? Crews Wanted for Mock Missions Ad Astra

If you have been waiting for your chance to learn what it is like to live and work on Mars wait no more!
The Mars Society is currently taking applications from the general public, educators, and students to develop the skills necessary to thrive in a regime analogous to The Red Planet. Crews of dedicated volunteers work in full simulation in the canyonlands of Utah in order to conduct field investigations in the physical sciences and engineering.
The Mars Desert Research Station (MDRS) is host to many “firsts” when dealing with crews and their research. There were the first all women and all men crews who resided within the Mars hab. The MDRS has also been host to the first children to live, study and play while in full simulation during the Family Living Analysis on Mars Expedition (F.L.A.M.E.) missions conducted in June 2005, March 2006, and March 2007.
