Nasa wants volunteers for year-long Mars colony simulation and has already built the base – check if you’re eligible

February 20, 2024

NASA is calling for volunteers to live in a simulated Mars colony for an entire year. The habitat you'll be living in is called Mars Dune Alpha and is a 3D-printed structure inside the John Space Center in Houston, Texas. Nasa says it "simulates a realistic Mars habitat" with the goal of supporting long-duration explorative missions in space. "Life in Mars Dune Alpha will resemble the expected experience for those living in a future Mars surface habitat," Nasa explained. "Applicants should have a strong desire for unique, rewarding adventures and interest in contributing to NASA’s work to prepare for the first human journey to Mars," Nasa said.
