Life as a moon astronaut, here on Earth 👩‍🚀

  • Fifty years on from the Apollo 11 moon landing, I live like an astronaut on the lunar surface here on Earth. NASA has used this habitat, called HI-SEAS, or Hawaii Space Exploration Analog and Simulation, to prepare astronauts for life on the moon or Mars. I try eating freeze-dried food, use a composting toilet and explore the lunar surface on EVA or extravehicular activity.

    If you still believe that NASA has ever been to space after seeing this, YOU’RE A MORON

    All this is fine, but the biggest thing is difference in gravity and atmosohere
    . .. How are they gonna create those test conditions on earth, it's impossible to create it along with doing all the day to day tasks within those conditions on earth

    I'm glad that Lexy is not ready for Mars, she would be too bussy to do any CNET :)

    It would be more realistic if they had someone role play as the aliens who live on the “dark side”, who put the hollow moon here to meddle with our evolution and to observe us...

    This got me thinking. How will astronauts resolve the need for sex on mars? Will they take special pills that restrict the desire? You can’t just hold it in for more than 2 years. It is pretty much torture

    Absolutely unrealistic, they hv an upright vacumm and full size fridge? On Mars or moon? They should be worrying abt oxygen or sand storm on Mars! Looks like a whole bunch of kids playing in backyard tree house pretending to be on Mars

    9:23 You opened your helmet... that means you're dead (by the simulation rules of HI-SEAS -- or if you were really on the moon or Mars)...

    8:30 Ironically, right as she says that the environment is "geologically accurate", the first plant life is shown...

    Mars and Moon habitat missions are closer to reality and we took a look at how this habitat is preparing astronauts and scientist to train for it.

    That simulated Mars base bathroom doesn't have a Bidet? My God, you humans are primitive.
