На Гаваях завершился эксперимент с имитацией условий жизни как на Марсе

In Hawaii yesterday, August 28 at 09:00 ended an experiment about a year. Under him a team of six volunteers spent 366 days in complete isolation from the outside world.

This was reported by representatives of the University of Hawaii, which together with NASA has organized this project, the Agency “RBC-Ukraine”.

The experiment began on 28 August last year. Volunteers from the USA, France and Germany 366 days lived in a special enclosed area in the form of a dome built on the slopes of the dormant volcano, Mauna Loa, vaguely reminiscent of a Martian landscape. Sunday at 09:00 local time the project participants had completed the experiment.

The international team of young scientists, selected by competition, includes three men and three women. The commander of the “crew” was the American Carmel Johnson, dealing with the problems of soil science and ecology in Montana. With it the experiment involved a physicist, engineer, biologist, physician and architect, who dreams to design a permanent residential complex on Mars.
