Mars on Earth : Israeli researchers simulate life on Mars in Negev desert
A team of six Israeli researchers ended a unique experiment, simulating what it would be like to live on Mars. The experiment was held in Israel's Negev desert, near the isolated town of Mitzpe Ramon, whose surroundings resemble the Martian environment in its geology, aridity, appearance and desolation. Participant Guy Ron, a nuclear physics professor from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, said the project was not only intended to look for new approaches in designing a future mission to the Red Planet but to increase public interest.
