List of Mars analogs
List of Mars analogs simulate aspects of the conditions people could experience during a future mission to Mars.
For example, in the 1960s the Soviets confined three cosmonauts for a year to prepare for longer space missions. Modern examples include an 120-day study in Hawaii to test a space food diet, and equipment tests inside Austrian mountain caves in 2012.
Among these are:
- Mars-500, simulated a 520-day mission in Moscow.
- Mars Analogue Research Station Program, simulated Mars habitats
- Arctic Mars Analog Svalbard Expedition, annual expeditions to remote sites
- Concordia Station, multi-purpose Arctic base
- HI-SEAS, a 120-day mission.
- NEEMO, underwater base.
