NASA seeks volunteers for Mars simulator. Learn what it takes to join the mission

NASA is on the hunt for potential “Martians” as they prepare for a simulated mission to Mars. The Crew Health and Performance Exploration Analog (CHAPEA) mission is set to begin in spring 2025, with volunteers living in Mars Dune Alpha at NASA’s Johnson Space Center.

During the one-year mission, participants will face challenges such as equipment failure, communication delays, and limited resources. Applicants must be nonsmoking US citizens between 30 and 55 years old, with a master’s degree in a STEM field and professional experience.

The selection process for potential “Martians” will take up to 13 months, including medical, psychological, and psychiatric tests. The first CHAPEA mission is scheduled to conclude in July 2023, with the crew harvesting crops and conducting simulated Marswalks.

These simulated missions are crucial in helping NASA prepare for future missions to Mars and ensure the health and support of crew members during deep space missions. Lessons learned from the first mission will be invaluable in paving the way for successful manned missions to the Red Planet.

Stay tuned for updates on this exciting opportunity for adventurous individuals to experience what it might be like to live and work on Mars. Insider Wales Sport will keep you informed on all the latest developments in this groundbreaking mission.
