Mars in our own backyard

I didn't realize just how in-depth the Mars Desert Research Station mission was. Two rovers, a full hab, eight international crew and some brand-new space suit designs from Australia. Nice stuff!

The MDRS is a site in the Mars-like Utah desert designed to test protocols and hardware for Mars missions.

Mission control for the MDRS was provided by our very own San Diego chapter of the Mars Society.
