simulated mission to Mars ó
unless you can figure out
what's going wrong.
You Are: In the desert outside Tucson, Arizona, underground in an
old missile silo.
Working On: A Mars flight simulation. Four volunteer "bionauts" have
each been sealed into identical pods containing plants, animals and a
large supply of water. The goal: survive for six months receiving no water,
food or air from the outside. Meet the bionauts
Are: You are one of the project's volunteer "MCSyMs" - Mission Control
System Monitors - the people who simulate Mission Control back on Earth.
You help the bionauts adjust the life conditions in their pods - and you
also monitor each bionaut's physical and psychological health.
Story Begins: The simulation is now in its 34th day, without any problems.
