Six crew members are working their way through a University of Hawai‘i project simulating an 8 month mission on Mars. The team has completed nearly three-quarters of its time with the Hawai‘i Space Exploration Analog and Simulation, or “HI-SEAS,” program on the slopes of Mauna Loa on Hawai‘i Island. In China, a smaller group has just started a similar mission with some differences. HPR’s Bill Dorman has more in today’s Asia Minute.
