Martian and Lunar Analogues

Thursday 24 October 2019, 11:30 – 12:15
Location: The Walter E. Washington Convention Center – Grand Ballroom C

Martian and Lunar analogues are becoming more and more important in testing human space exploration missions. Apart from their scientific value as a testbed to investigate the use of various technologies which can be used partially or totally in future exploration of space, they can become a tool of promoting space science among young generations and a means to create the interest for not-space entities in research related to the human exploration of space. This session will hightlight the technologies which are currently used or foreseen in the space analogues, also in view of analysing the potential of creating standards with procedures, methodologies and technological assets when simulating space missions and operations in terrestrial analogues.
