NASA launches year-long experiment to simulate life on Mars

A team funded by NASA has started a year of living in a dome near a rugged Hawaii volcano to simulate what life would be like for humans on Mars. They would have to endure living literally cramped together in an abode known as Hawaii Space Analog and Simulation (HI-SEAS), which measures 36-foot-wide and 20-foot-tall.
