planned for the Space Exploration Initiative. Antarctica is a compelling place in which to conduct these tests, because the individuals engaged in Antarctic science are doing the same type of research that will be conducted on the Moon and Mars: exobiology, geology, astrophys-ics, and basic biology.

National Aeronautics and Space Administration.;]. Use of antarctic analogs to support the space exploration initiative. By Corinne Buoni Abstract. This report has discussed the Space Exploration Initiative (SEI) and the U.S. Antarctic Program (USAP) in the context of assessing the potential rationale and strategy for conducting a cooperative NASA/NSF (National Science Foundation) effort. Potential approaches to the use of the Antarctic as an analog to the lunar and Mars planetary surface segments of the SEI are reviewed. It is concluded that a well-planned and sustained program of ground-based research and testing in environments analogous to the moon and Mars is a rational method for reducing the risks associated with human space : John T. Lynch and Barney Roberts.

  Many space environmental factors can be readily reproduced on Earth. However, prolonged microgravity and the full spectrum of radiation are difficult to replicate under Earth’s conditions. Substitute test-beds to probe hazards, address medical risks, and allow familiarization with the novel space environments offer a potential solution Cited by: 2.
