New Zealand has sent its first citizens to Mars. Well, sort of -- in reality, they were in Utah.
The three men and three women of the KiwiMars team lived together in a two-story, 10-meter-wide "environment" with greenhouse and observatory to replicate the conditions of a mission to Mars.
"When you get to such a place, everything is alien," mission commander Haritina Mogosanu said. "People do get nervous, they get scared and a little bit on edge because they don't know how to react. It's like a survival camp."
