Mars food study complete
HAWAII (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Six researchers who've spent the last four months on a simulated Martian base in Hawaii are wrapping up their experiment Tuesday.
It was part of a food study funded by NASA.
The six researchers with various backgrounds spent the last several months researching what foods astronauts might eat during a mission to Mars.
They had to cook meals using only dehydrated and shelf-stable ingredients.
The findings from Hawaii Space Exploration Analog and Simulation Investigator will be presented at the International Astronautical Congress later this year.
