Future missions to Mars may
see some local grinds in space.
A team of researchers from
UH Manoa and Cornell University is inviting the public to submit their
favorite recipes for a four-month simulated mission to Mars.
The project is called
HI-SEAS and its part of a NASA study to figure out how to keep
astronauts well-fed on future trips to the red planet.
UH Manoa’s Kim Binsted is
looking forward to the recipe contest and is hoping to see some local
Recipe submissions are being
accepted online now through March 8th. The HI-SEAS simulated mission
will begin in April. To learn more, visit the HI-SEAS website at www.hi-seas.org.
