AMADEE-18 Live

Updates from our Mars simulation in Oman

The AMADEE-18 Mars Simulation took place from 01st – 28th February 2018 in the  Arabian desert in Oman. AMADEE-18 was a Mars simulation mission led by the Austrian Space Forum (OeWF) in partnership with the Oman National Steering Committee and international research organizations. The four-week mission served as an analog to prepare future crewed missions to the planet Mars.
