Ready to send astronauts to Mars, NASA is now looking for people who want to live on “Mars”.
Especially inside the 1700 square meter Mars Habitat Mars Tune Alpha.
The habitat was created by a 3D printer and housed inside a building at the Johnson Space Center in Houston.
Room only food
It writes that paid volunteers will work on a simulated innovation mission within the habitat A.P..
In addition, they will carry out space travel, have limited communications with the outside world, and will use only the equipment used on Mars today.
Room food is also available for volunteers only.
NASA will conduct the first of three such experiments in the fall of 2022.
We want to create Mars-realistic conditions. NASA’s lead researcher Grace Douglas says we want to understand how humans work on them.
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 pilot experience.
People should be in good physical condition without food problems.
In addition, only Americans between the ages of 30 and 55 can apply.
A lot can be seen on Netflix
Canadian astronaut Chris Hotfield praises the project.
– This shows that NASA is looking for people close to astronauts. This is good because Hotfield says it would be a great experiment if participants actually resembled people going to Mars.
He encourages those involved to apply.
– Think about how much you can get through Netflix. If they have a musical instrument there, you can go in and out as a concert musician without knowing anything.
