Update: AMADEE-15 competition has concluded!
The AMADEE-15 competition has concluded on Monday, 6 PM. We want to thank all participants for their numerous creative questions which will be answered in the upcoming days. The winner will be notified via email.
Question of the Day (1. Place):
Andreas Egger with the winning prize.
Winning question: On Mars the color “Red/orange” is predominant. Will the astronauts desire after other colors after some time on Mars or do they get pictures, objects etc. against “homesickness”?
The answer to this question can be rewatched here.
Between 3rd and 15th August 2015 we will conduct our 11th Mars analog simulation. This time the Kaunertal glacier in Austria will serve as site for a simulated human Mars mission.
Have you ever wondered what a Mars analog simulation actually is? Do you know why our spacesuits are called Aouda? And why is the OeWF conducting the AMADEE-15 mission on the Kaunertal glacier – wouldn’t a desert be more suitable?
Starting on the 1st of August we will answer one question every day and therefore invite you to send us your questions. From all the entries we will pick the most creative and interesting question, which will be sent to our field crew on “Mars” to be answered in a video message
This question will be send to our field crew on “Mars” to answer it via video message. Additionally, the winner will get an AMADEE-15 goodie bag as well as 2 ski tickets for the Kaunertal Glacier. Moreover from all transmitted questions you can win a signed book from astronaut Chris Hadfield (german).
