Ground Based Study: HERA Campaign 1
NASA Johnson Space Center (JSC)
Four 7-day missions
The Human Exploration Research Analog (HERA) serves as an analog for the NASA Human Research Program (HRP) to study and evaluate impacts due to isolation, remoteness and confined habitation. Investigators will be looking at psychological, human factor and physiological impacts and the development and verification of countermeasures to reduce or mitigate those impacts. Each HERA mission will simulate space exploration scenarios.
HERA Campaign 1 consisted of four one-week missions which were implemented per the following schedule: Mission 1 February 27 - March 5, 2014; Mission 2 April 24 - 30, 2014; Mission 3 June 19 - 25, 2014; and Mission 4 between September 5 - 11, 2014. During each of these missions, up to 13 investigations were conducted.
