HI-SEAS Part III – Hawaii Space Exploration Analog and Simulation – Marssimulation

Interview of 2 crew members in the simulation after the mission

The interviews circle around the following topics:

CHALLENGES:
What were your greatest challenges and your greatest difficulties?

LESSONS LEARNT:
What would you make different the next time?
How would you prepare differently?

ACHIEVEMENTS:
What were your greatest achievements?
What are you personally proud of?
How will this change your personal and professional life?


HI-SEAS Hawaii Space Exploration Analog and Simulation Mission:
The NASA Human Exploration & Operations Mission Directorate has identified a number of risks associated with long-term human space exploration. Many of these can be fruitfully investigated in an Earth-bound analog environment – that is, somewhere on Earth that is similar to the target space environment in relevant ways. HI-SEAS (Hawaii Space Exploration Analog and Simulation) is a planetary surface exploration analog site at ~8500 feet on the Mauna Loa side of the saddle area on the Big Island of Hawaii. HI-SEAS is funded for its first season of operation by a grant from the NASA Human Research Program, for research focusing on new forms of food and new food preparation strategies for long-term space exploration. This first mission will involve six astronaut-like (in terms of education, experience, and attitude) crewmembers living in the habitat for 120 days under Mars-exploration conditions (e.g. with communication latencies and blackouts, in close quarters, under strict water-use rules etc.). The crew has been selected from over 700 applicants, and the 120-day simulated mission was run from mid of April to mid of August 2013.
