West News Wire: This summer, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is preparing four individuals to reside on Mars. The four “Martians” will be a part of NASA’s human exploration expedition on Mars, even though the US space agency has long sought to send humans to the neighboring planet.
Additionally, NASA has sent satellites, the InSight lander, a rover expedition with the Perseverance rover, the Ingenuity small robotic helicopter, and related delivery systems, all of which are intended to provide the Red Planet with its first comprehensive examination.
The four volunteers are a part of a 12-month plan to get people ready for visiting Mars. When humans land on the Red Planet, they will live in a habitat that replicates the conditions on Mars.
The crew is scheduled to begin in June this year as the teams obtain the most accurate data during the analog mission.
The 3D-printed habitat includes private crew quarters, a kitchen, and dedicated areas for medical, recreation, fitness, work, and crop growth activities, as well as a technical work area and two bathrooms.
“During the simulation, crew members will carry out different types of mission activities, including simulated spacewalks, robotic operations, habitat maintenance, personal hygiene, exercise, and crop growth,” NASA said in a statement.
The crew will face environmental stressors such as resource limitations, isolation, and equipment failure in order to be as close to the situation on Mars when humans arrive. The team will be subjected to resource limitations, isolation, equipment failure, and significant workloads during their habitation.”
