Collaborator Julia DeMarines lands on Mars (sort of)

 Today is day 5 (or sol 5) on Mars... or more like "Mars.” I have entered a two-week Mars simulation in the middle of Utah with five other crew-mates. The program is called the Mars Desert Research Station, or MDRS for short, and it gives crews a chance to experience the isolation and the collaboration of what a mission to Mars might actually be like. I am on MDRS crew 188 and our crew is comprised of alums of various International Space University programs. Each crew member has their own role and call name for the radio communication we use. Meet our crew!
