The Mars Society invites you to join us this Thursday (July 15th) at 6pm PST / 9pm EST for the next episode of our Red Planet Live video podcast with an amazing discussion with Crew 245 about their recent two-week simulation at the Mars Desert Research Station in southern Utah.
Participating in the show with our host, Ron Craig, will be the full team – Dylan Dickstein, Commander, Shayna Hume, Executive Officer (XO), Julio Hernandez, Crew Botanist, Shravan Hariharan, Crew Engineer, Alex Coultrup, Crew Health & Safety Officer, and Olivia Ettlin, Crew Scientist.
Learn what it’s like to serve as an analog astronaut in one of the most Mars-like environments in the world. How did the crew deal with the close quarters and isolation? What kind of food did they eat? How did it feel wearing space suits during their EVA missions outside the station? Questions are also welcomed from the general public via email.
