This is your brain—on Mars

In December 2019, professor Olav Krigolson got as close to Mars as he could without actually being there. Olav led a research team to HI-SEAS, a Mars-habitat simulation in Hawaii. They went for a one-week mission to test their fatigue-detection system—technology that monitors brain health and performance. It might one day help astronauts on a mission to Mars. In this Café Scientifique event, Olav discusses the technology, his experiments as a pretend astronaut and what it was like to live in a Mars simulation.
