Give Me Some ‘Space’!

If two is company and three is a crowd, what is four – especially when you are living and working in close quarters and under stress for several days? That is what NASA’s Flight Analogs Project, funded by NASA’s Human Research Program, set to find out when it sent four crew members on a simulated mission to the Geographos asteroid on February 27, 2014. This initiated the first of many missions that will take place inside the Human Exploration Research Analog (HERA) located at NASA’s Johnson Space Center.

“Flight analogs like HERA provide researchers with environments that emulate spaceflight conditions,” said Joe Neigut, project manager of NASA’s Flight Analog Project. “We use analogs to better understand the impacts of spaceflight on the human body.”

HRP Spaceflight Analogs with Joe Neigut and Ronita Cromwell

Analogs have been used for a very long time at NASA and they continually refine and evolve over time but the concepts of analogs always stay the same.
