Mars Crew Emerges From Isolation Experiment

To simulate a Mars mission, NASA put 6 test subjects inside an isolation chamber in Hawaii for 8 months. The experiment ended yesterday as the crew emerged from the environment and had breakfast. The participants ate mostly freeze dried food for the past 8 months and wore space suits whenever they left the living quarters. They also had to travel in groups to simulate life in space. NASA is considering the experiment a success.
