(NYPost)   For the landing on Mars footage, the government will not use a studio like the one for the moon landing, they have settled on the slopes of a Hawaiian volcano   (nypost.com) divider line 32

How are we letting them get away with this?

"Moon staging" is a more appropriate description of that event back in the 60's.

Oh, sure. Send the Puerto Ricans to meet the martians first. That'll work out well.

Why wait? Just give this a red tint and call it a day.  Say they sent astronauts there without announcing it because terrorists. Should be enough to convince the public. They'll believe anything as long as the TV says it enough.

AverageAmericanGuy: Not Haleakala? NASA's slipping.


It does seem like Haleakala would be better because of the vast temperature changes if they camped up top but in the article it mentioned they go outside "at least" once a week. Makes it sound like they spend most of their time inside and just need to be on Hawaii for the landscape when they look out. So they don't want them to see tourists hiking around the Haleakala crater or a beautiful view to the ocean- just vast empty terrain.

People comment that the big island can be like vacationing on another planet- so that may be why they chose that particular spot.

I would assume they are at or near the summit of Mauna Loa, which has been used for Mars simulations before (for the Rovers).  It's not a bad choice.

Subby just sounds plain ridiculous.

Everyone knows that the Arizona desert is the place of choice.

Do we call it a Washigton American volcano when we speak of Mount. St. Helens or Rainier? We are speaking about terrain not people who want a special label.


/moving back to Hawaii (the Big Island) soon so getting a kick
//should go set up some aliens in the crater in the middle of the night

You're looking at the wrong word.

I thought the preferred nomenclature was 'Asian'.

Get ready for some SERIOUS CSB bro's.....

A few years ago, my wife and I went to Hawaii & stayed with my BIL and his wife in Kona. He works at one of the observatories on top of these mountains. The altitude goes so fast, so quickly, he can't drink the week that he works. People frequently pass out and the observatory is full of emergency oxygen stations.

I thought it was all crap until he took us there one afternoon. As we went up the "mountain" which was just a dirt hill with a crappy road, I was feeling it. When we got there, we had some time to kill and we took a little hike to a nearby lake.

It was surreal. I lived in the California desert for 1/3 of my life, but I'd never seen anything like it. Just dirt and rocks. No bugs, no weeds, no plants, nothing. It really was like being on another world. And the lack of oxygen didn't help.

In the observatory, I thought I was going to pass out. But the cool thing was we got to see them calibrate the telescope. It rotated 480 degrees, because it needed to be able to do 360 plus some in order to track during the night and not rip out the cables.

So, yeah. CSB. CSB.

marcre3363: CSB.


Of all the places I've been, I've never been to Hawaii. I'd like to crawl all over it sometime to see things like that.

I've been to Georgia and California and anywhere I could run. I've been to Nice and the isle of Greece
And I've seen some things that a woman ain't s'pose to see
I've been to paradise but I've never been to me...

If they don't keep their suits and their habitat at a pressure of 166 atmospheres, they're not simulating enough how it'll be on Mars.

That's a lot of atmospheres. I'd hate to get a pinhole in a suit.

166 atmospheres? Are you talking about the unit of pressure equal to the average sea level atmospheric pressure of the Earth: ~16.7 pounds per square inch?

You messed up your conversion somewhere.
