On a remote mountain in Hawaii, there's a fake planet Mars. Six volunteers are secluded in an imitation Mars habitat where they will work as imitation astronauts for one very real year. The goal: to help NASA understand what life might be like on the red planet—and plan for the day when the dress rehearsals are over, and we blast off for real. Host Lynn Levy has been chronicling this experiment from the moment the crew set foot in their habitat, communicating with them through audio diaries that detail their discoveries, their frustrations, and their evolving and devolving relationships with each other. From those diaries, Gimlet Media has crafted an addictive serialized documentary: the true story of a fake planet.

Pretty crazy that we did this but we are so happy that it was all recorded.
I have always been fascinated with what it would be like to live in outer space. I think that this experiment is interesting to listen to and makes a great introduction to listening to Podcasts. I listened to this podcast when I was unable to leave my home due to severe back pain and didn't want to have friends over due to the pain and effort to sit.
