Simulated Mars mission ends its year-long experiment, of humans living on Mars.
After 365 days, the longest mission in project history, HI-SEAS showed that humans could live in conditions that exist on red planet.

Professor Kim Binsted, HI-SEAS’ principal investigator, said:
HI-SEAS is an example of international collaborative research hosted and run by the University of Hawaiʻi. Its really exciting to be able to welcome the crew back to Earth and back to Hawaiʻi after a year on Mars.”
