Wired tell us of six wannabe Martians who are taking life on Mars for a test drive here on Earth, in the Utah desert. The desert, with its barren expanses of rust-coloured dirt, looks like it could well be an alien planet.

Living out of a small cylindrical building, the would-be space explorers (some scientists, some not) live every moment as if they were the first human outpost on the red planet: gearing up in spacesuits whenever they venture outside, eating dehydrated food, and worrying about shower and toilet water.
