Mars Research Crew Emerges After 8 Months of Isolation

Tags: mars crew mission

The data they produced will help NASA select individuals and groups with the right mix of traits to best cope with the stress, isolation and danger of a two-to-three year trip to Mars.

The Crew was quarantined for eight months on a vast plain below the summit of the Big Island's Mauna Loa, the world's largest active volcano.

While isolated, the crew members wore space suits and traveled in teams whenever they left their small dome living structure.

The team's information technology specialist, Laura Lark, thinks a manned voyage to Mars is a reasonable goal for NASA.

The devices could sense if people were avoiding one another, or if they were "toe-to-toe'' in an argument, said the project's lead investigator, University of Hawaii professor Kim Binsted.
