ONCE UPON A TIME I LIVED ON MARS Space, Exploration, and Life on Earth

by | Read by Kate Greene

Contemporary Culture • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Science journalist and author Kate Greene delivers timely reflections on her brief tenure with NASA's 2013 Hawaii Space Exploration Analog and Simulation, known by the acronym HI-SEAS. Greene's tone is down to earth as she candidly discusses her experiences in the simulated Mars mission and the profound impact it had on her personal and professional lives. Following a competitive application process, Greene spent four months inside a biodome, performing routine tasks and studies alongside a small crew. The author frames her narrative within larger social issues and scientific questions, such as the criteria for personnel selection, the effects of isolation on the human psyche, and the roles boredom and change play in our development. Her transformative experience encourages listener engagement with the topics and questions raised. J.R.T. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2020]
