To prepare to send astronauts to Mars, NASA is now looking for people who want to live on “Mars.”
Specifically inside Mars Dune Alpha, the home of Mars with an area of 1,700 square metres.
The habitat was created by a 3D printer and is located inside a building at Johnson Space Center in Houston.
Room food only
She wrote that the hired volunteers would work on the mission of discovering a simulation in-home AP.
In addition, they will make trips into space, have limited contacts with the outside world, and use only equipment that would have been used on Mars today.
Volunteers will also have access to room food only.
NASA will conduct the first of three such experiments in the fall of 2022.
We want to build realistic situations for Mars. We want to understand how humans are performing in them, says Grace Douglas, a senior researcher at NASA.
The application portal opened on Friday. But it is not open to anyone to apply.
To apply, you must have a master’s degree in science, engineering, or mathematics, or have experimental experience.
People should also be in good physical shape, without having any problems with diet.
In addition, only Americans between the ages of 30 and 55 can apply.
Can watch a lot of Netflix
Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield praised the project.
– This indicates that NASA is looking for people who are close to being astronauts. This is good because it is a better experience if the participants are more similar to people who have already been to Mars, Hadfield says.
Interested persons are encouraged to apply.
Just think how much you’ll be able to catch on Netflix. If they have a musical instrument there, you can go there without knowing anything and come out as a concert musician.
