The Guardians reports that despite living with each other for eight months, none of the participants in the simulated Mars base "mission" lost their temper to the point of insulting one another. They only ate "shelf-stable" food and the 20-minute communication delay made them miss the one thing we all take for granted: the Internet.
The Hi-Seas (Hawaii Space Exploration Analog and Simulation) mission was the fifth in a series of similar experiments funded by Nasa. The missions have studied the food that explorers would eat away from Earth, the social interaction of crew members in a claustrophobic environment, and the psychological and biological impact.
Speaking from Hawaii, where the four men and two women had lived in a 1,200 sq ft dome situated on a barren active volcano, Payler told the Press Association: “I was very lucky to have a great crew. No isolated group can be immune to any arguments, but everyone did an amazing job of working through any issues we had.
