Human Exploration Research Analog

NASA’s Human Research Program utilizes the Human Exploration Research Analog (HERA) to conduct a series of analog missions in Houston, Texas. The HERA is a unique, multi-level facility used as an analog for isolation, confinement, and remote conditions in exploration scenarios. These simulated missions may include up to 45 days spent living and working isolated inside of the HERA habitat. NASA is seeking healthy subjects to participate in these missions to learn about the physiological and psychological effects of isolation and confinement on humans to help prepare for missions to the Moon and on to Mars. For more information continue reading the information on this website to learn more about these missions and if interested, submit the application for consideration as a potential HERA mission crew member.
