(Excerpt from daily mission reports)

This image was made while following a team of Indian scientists in a simulated Mars environment in the Mars Desert Research Station in southern Utah. Scientists spend two weeks at a time pretending to be on Mars, complete with space suits fashioned from Dickies jumpsuits, fake airlocks and four wheelers standing in for rovers.

Photographer's Bio:

Benjamin Rasmussen (1984) spent his childhood on an island in the southern Philippines, his university years with evangelicals in a small town in northern Arkansas, and a year with the descendants of Vikings in the Faroe Islands, a nation of 45,000 residents in the middle of the North Atlantic.
