Mars SOciety at SAM, Biosphere 2

Mars Society at SAM, Biosphere 2 Today we were honored to receive Executive Director James Burk and several of the Mars Society staff and volunteers to Biosphere 2 and SAM. B2 Executive Director John Adams and Research Director at SAM Kai Staats provided a tour of B2 and then a visit to SAM with walk-through of the Test Module, Workshop, and Crew Quarters under construction.

SAM is in many ways given form on the foundation laid by Biosphere 2 and more than two decades in which the Mars Society’s Mars Desert Research Station (MDRS) more than 1000 individuals have worked to help our species prepare to live and explore beyond our home world.

“Thank you Robert Zubrin, Shannon Rupert, and the many analogs worldwide for the inspiration to design and construct SAM.” — Kai Staats
