Mars iso­la­tion ex­per­i­ment in Hawaii ends

The Myanmar Times - - World -

The six peo­ple who went into iso­la­tion for a year in Hawaii to help NASA plan for a mis­sion to Mars emerged on Au­gust 28, happy to breathe fresh air and meet new peo­ple. The team was based on a bar­ren, north­ern slope of Mauna Loa, liv­ing in­side a dome that is 36 feet (11 me­tres) in di­am­e­ter and 20 feet tall. French as­tro­bi­ol­o­gist Cy­prien Verseux said that he was “feel­ing ex­cited” about be­ing in the open and eat­ing fresh food again.
