Forget about rockets, space suits and scientific discovery. Researchers whose work may allow human beings to one day live on Mars or the Moon are dealing now with more prosaic questions: Can you grow strawberries in space? Can you give tuna noodle casserole a shelf life of more than three years? And what do you do with all the trash?

Simulated The Post-Standard
Philip Turek, a 1980 graduate of Southern Cayuga High School, has been chosen by the Mars Society to participate on a simulated exploration of Mars in the Utah desert. Turek is a graduate of Cornell University and lives in Huntington Beach, California, where he is a teacher with a keen interest in outer space. He said his goal in applying for the simulated experience is to try to involve his students directly in the exploration of Mars.
