2006 saw my last research mission (at least for the time being) to the Mars Society's Mars Desert Research Station (MDRS), a Mars-base analog simulation facility located in the most Mars-like area of the Utah desert. Again I was the mission commander, responsible for everything from crew selection and training to research planning to running the actual mission on site. Crew 47 continued the proud tradition of Georgia Tech crews.
Here are a few pictures of the experience; many more are in my Google Photos album. Links to more information can be found at the bottom of this page.
Please contact me if you want full-resolution versions or if you plan to use any of these pictures.
