Disaster threatens a
simulated mission to Mars
unless you can figure out
what's going wrong.

Where You Are: In the desert outside Tucson, Arizona, underground in an old missile silo.

What You're 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

Who You 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.

When Our Story Begins: The simulation is now in its 34th day, without any problems.
