A simulated voyage to Mars: Crew emerges from isolation

Simulated voyage to Mars ends after 8 monthsA NASA-backed research crew who have been cooped up in a Mars-like habitat on a remote Hawaii volcano since January have emerged from isolation.

The six-member group was part of a study designed to better understand the psychological impacts a long-term space mission would have on astronauts.
Data from the simulated voyage to Mars "will contribute to the future exploration of Mars and the future exploration of space in general", science officer Samuel Paylor said on Sunday.

NASA hopes to send humans to the red planet by the 2030s.

The US space agency will use the data to select individuals and groups with the right mix of traits to best cope with the stress, isolation and danger of a two-to-three year trip to the planet.
