NASA intends to send a group of six people to Mars for a long time period of six months. This Mars mission is planned to occur somewhere in the year 2030.
Six people among which there were three men and three women hid in a volcano of Hawaii for the Mission Mars. The basic purpose of this experiment was to replicate the life of Mars on that planet. The Hawaii volcano mission is known as Hawaii Space Exploration analog and Stimulation. Moreover, NASA has given it a short form of HI-SEA study.
NASA designed the particular experiment in order to physically and psychologically prepare astronauts for a really long mission.
The scientist filled the group with a particular amount of food, water and other basic necessitates. They lived the entire period of eight months with limited resources. Sadly, email was the only manner of communication for them. Unfortunately, every email sent by the members took nearly 30 minutes to reach its destination. It signified that on the whole they had to wait for approximately 1 hour to get the reply of an email.
Luckily, Experts permitted the group to take their cell phones along with them. However, the usage of cell phone was particularly restricted to the cases of emergency.
Finally, scientists presented the complete report of this experiment to NASA. The study unveiled a really astonishing thing related to the experiment.
The study demonstrated that the woman performed their duties and survived more easily than the man on the Hawaii Dome.
Karen Green was one of those six lucky people who took part in this simulate Mars mission. She lived nearly four months in that dangerous 36 diameter volcano.
Recently, Green claimed that woman is a better option to send first on Mars as compared to the man. She stated several reasons to support her statement. She stated that the appetite of a man is more than an ordinary woman. Therefore, it was difficult for a man to maintain their weight.
All the members of the group worked out for the same time period without any gender discrimination. However, men burned 3,000 calories everyday while women burned 2,000.
Obviously, food and hunger play a vital role in the accomplishment of the study. The spacecraft can carry a limited amount of payload in which scientist have to load numerous other significant things with the food.
