If the day comes, Silverton resident Gus Frederick will be ready to land on Mars. The president of The Mars Society’s Oregon chapter is about to spend two weeks living at a simulated Mars habitat station in Utah. During that time, he will conduct research inside a habitat building and won’t venture outside without donning a simulated Mars suit. “It’s kind of like being a Martian for a few weeks,” Frederick said.
