Ever aspire to explore the "HI-SEAS" of the Red Planet of Mars? Those attending the Sacred Hearts Academy 2018 Science Symposium on February 17th can do just that - with the assistance from Dr. Kim Binsted, the keynote speaker and principal investigator of the University of Hawai'i at Manoa's Hawaii Space Exploration Analog and Simulation (HI-SEAS) project.

Nestled on the slopes of Mauna Loa on the Island of Hawai'i, this ground-breaking, international project focuses on tearing down barriers to human journey to the planet Mars.

Analog and Simulation Project
Specifically, this site simulates life on the Red Planet, with "crew members" on an eight-month "trip" under the watchful eye of research scientists. Far from being on "Earth, the experience aims to mimic the gravity and habitats on Mars.

Science Symposium attendees will learn about common daily tasks conducted during this HI-SEAS journey, including preparing food using only shelf-stable ingredients, exercising to stay healthy in differing planetary environments and conducting in-depth, NASA-driven research experiments.

And, since an actual stay on the planet would lack common, everyday Earth "perks," Binsted will discuss individual and group behavioral dynamics of those on a quest to conquer the "final frontier!"
