Austrian Space Forum selects 19 international experiments for Oman Mars simulation Among selected institutions are teams from Oman, North America and Europe The OeWF has selected 19 experiments from international and domestic submissions to be part of the Mars analog […]
Sophie Gruber, physics student at the University of Innsbruck and OeWF member is about to finish her Bachelor thesis. The Austrian Space Forum supported her research topic. In this blog post, she explains her thesis: Where to look for life […]
Our international Mars simulation take us to Mars-like regions on Earth. Directed by a Mission Support Center in Innsbruck, Austria, small field crews conduct experiments to prepare for future human Mars missions. But there are many ways to work as […]
Anjana Jegatheesan, a master student in Space Science and Technology of the Luleå University of Technology in Sweden, has been staying with us for a while now to work on improving our Aouda spacesuit simulator. Her newest blog will give […]
Max Lell is currently staying with the Austrian Space Forum, doing his master thesis on the Aouda space suit simulator. In this week’s blog, he explains his research. How did you get in there and how is it to work […]
When looking to settle down beyond Earth, on Mars or the Moon for example, we often focus almost exclusively on the technological aspects. We are researching how to build and land spaceships that can take humans safely to their new […]
For many years, the OeWF has conducted simulations of human missions to Mars. The main motivation for this is science, and the main attention during such missions goes to our analog astronauts. But behind the scenes, there are many support […]
Or: Part two of a traveller´s report on selecting a test site for Mars simulations I hope you enjoyed the first part of my blog, filled with personal insights of the scouting mission in Israel. Now, I would like to […]
Our scouting team travelled to Israel and Oman in March 2017 to find suitable site locations for our next big #simulateMars mission. Sophie Gruber was part of the scouting team and describes her impressions about the scouting activities in Israel.
Our intern Elizabeth Young reports about her work on the upcoming Aouda.X locomotion test campaign and how Martian and Lunar gravities can be simulated via a vertical treadmill. Watch the video to see the vertical treadmill in action.
