The Mars Desert Research Station conducts geological and social research, simulating the possible life of astronauts on the surface of the Red Planet.

Ukrainian engineer Sergei Yakimov heads the Mars Research Station in the San Rafael Desert in the American state of Utah. The Voice of America reported this on Sunday, November 19.

It is noted that Yakimov, a graduate of the Kyiv Polytechnic Institute, eight years ago became one of the hundreds of applicants for the upcoming flight to Mars. This mission was organized by a company from the Netherlands, Mars One. He went bankrupt, but Sergei did not give up on his dream.

According to the publication, geological and social research is being conducted at the Mars Desert Research Station, simulating the possible life of astronauts on the surface of the Red Planet.

“We host various groups from around the world that conduct experiments or test equipment. And this Mars station is classified as a geological analogue, because the geology of the surrounding desert is close to the geology of of Mars as much as possible,” said Sergei Yakimov.

He also participated in several expeditions.

According to Yakimov, the latest research by a group from Europe established that the best crew to fly to Mars should be made up entirely of women. Compared to men, they use less resources – air, water, food, which are scarce in space.

It was previously reported that a Roskomos scientist died in Moscow from mushroom poisoning.
