The United States space agency NASA will send humans to Mars in future. It has been conducting a number of experiments to make sure that the mission is going to be successful. Now, NASA has been getting help from the US Navy submarine force to prepare for the mission.
NASA has been working with a military laboratory at the submarine base in Groton, Connecticut, to find out how teams deal with stress during long-time simulations. Like astronauts, submariners face a number of challenges, such as isolation, dependence on crewmates, and unfavorable environments.
While providing information on the space agency’s work with US Navy submarine force, Brandon Vessey, a scientist with NASA’s human research program, said, “We have a shared interest with the Navy in team resilience. When you stick people together for a long period of time, how are they going to do”.
The research by US Navy started approximately five years when Naval Submarine Medical Research Laboratory in Groton started analyzing how teams can work together better. Scientists from Navy observed submarine crews and found a method to evaluate how teams are performing.
NASA’s experiment with US Navy submarine force has been scheduled to start in January or February next year. The experiment will help the space agency in its future deep space mission. As per NASA’s plans, it will send humans to an asteroid by 2025 and to the Red Planet in the 2030s.
