Researchers from the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa are looking for crew members for a new series of NASA-funded, long-duration space exploration studies.

These types of studies are essential for NASA to understand how teams of astronauts will perform on long-duration space exploration missions, such as those that will be required for human travel to Mars.

The studies will also allow researchers to recommend strategies for crew composition for such missions, and to determine how best to support such crews while they are working in space.

The upcoming missions will be conducted at the Hawaiʻi Space Exploration Analog and Simulation (HI-SEAS) site, an isolated Mars-like environment on the slopes of Mauna Loa on the Big Island at approximately 8,200 feet above sea level. Crew member participants will live in the same modern geodesic dome habitat that successfully supported four long duration NASA-funded studies including a year-long study of team cohesion that garnered national media attention this year.
