Colonizing Mars Might Require Humans to Radically Alter Their Bodies and Minds

In 2016, two astronauts finished nearly a year of work on the International Space Station. NASA's Scott Kelly and Russia's Mikhail Kornienko were studied closely for changes in their physical and psychological health.

NASA touts the mission as part of its "Journey to Mars", in which it hopes to send humans to the Red Planet by the 2030s. But a recent paper published in the journal Space Policy argues that there are so many aspects to a Martian colony that it is all but impossible to simulate the parameters on Earth.

"We can not simulate the same physical and environmental conditions to reconstruct the Martian environment, I mean such traits like Martian microgravitation or radiation exposure," Konrad Szocik, a cognitive scientist at the University of Information Technology and Management in Rzeszow, Poland and lead author of the paper, said in an e-mail. "Consequently, we cannot predict physical and biological effects of humans living on Mars."

Why Colonizing Mars Depends On Making Food Taste Better In Space

IT'S NO SMALL POTATOES
Engineering feats aside, we'll need creature comforts if we're ever going to survive in deep space. A home-cooked meal could be the difference between sanity and hysteria. FULL STORY

Will there be Hamburger Helper? Sure thing!

No beef though. Only hamburger substitute -

Some IKEA Engineers Are Pretending To Live On Mars

Post by Riddick » 06-13-2017 12:02 AM

At face value, it sounds delightfully goofy—and totally useless: Swedish furniture company IKEA, known for creating impossibly cheap (and often incredibly chic) flat-pack furniture, has sent several of its engineers to live in a Mars simulation. Yes, the brave men and women who designed your beloved EKTORP sofa and GJÖRA bed frame are hanging out at the Mars Desert Research Station in Utah, playing at space colonization.

But the exercise, which IKEA announced this week at its annual Democratic Design Day event in Älmhult, isn't just about helping NASA create cozier space habitats—though WIRED reports that the team is hopeful they'll be able to come up with some interesting ideas in collaboration with Lund University, which in turn does work with NASA.

The primary goal is actually to use the extreme conditions of a Mars simulation—impersonal design, cramped quarters, space toilets—to come up with design solutions that will work even better on Earth. FULL STORY
