Their advertisement is asking for healthy and motivated non-smoking  U.S. citizens and permanent residents between the ages of 30 to 55 to participate in the study. Additionally, volunteers must have a degree in a STEM field or work experience. Four people will be picked for the experience as they will live in a 3D-printed bunker for a year that will be similar to the enviornement on Mars.

“Each mission will consist of four crew members living and working in a 1,700-square-foot module 3D-printed by ICON, called Mars Dune Alpha. The habitat will simulate the challenges of a mission on Mars, including resource limitations, equipment failure, communication delays, and other environmental stressors,” the post reads.

The mission is expected to begin in Fall 2022 and will take place at the Johnson Center where the volunteers will be exposed to different tests along with performng tasks for the space center.

“Crew tasks may include simulated spacewalks, scientific research, use of virtual reality and robotic controls, and exchanging communications. The results will provide important scientific data to validate systems and develop solutions.”
