My Session Status

Expert/EducatorGrades 3-8

How would you perform in isolation, confinement, and remote conditions? The Human Exploration Research Analog (HERA), a simulation environment at NASA Johnson Space Center, puts volunteer crew members to the test in its unique three-story habitat designed to serve as an analog for these conditions in space exploration scenarios, such as traveling to Mars. This session will provide participants with a fascinating overview of the HERA program by NASA expert Lisa Spence, Flight Analogs Project Manager. This unique information can be utilized to teach students about analogs and to explore why analogs are critical to space exploration.
