The Mars Evangelist: Dr. Sheyna Gifford’s Year on the Red Planet

  • St. Louis physician Sheyna Gifford spent a year (Aug 2015-Aug 2016) isolated with five other researchers in a 1,200-sq.-ft. geodesic dome perched on a remote Hawaiian volcano’s hillside as part of a NASA-funded program to explore the possibilities of human colonization of Mars.
  • The crew of the HI-SEAS IV, or Hawai’i Space Exploration Analog and Simulation, spent 12 months with no real-time contact, with people outside the dome, living in close quarters without access to outside air or fresh food aside from what they could grow. When they did venture outside, they wore analog "spacesuits."
  • Gifford summed up the job as, “Go to Mars, grow food, do science, don’t kill each other.”
  • Situated on Mauna Loa’s naturally barren, volcanic northern slope, the HI-SEAS habitation site closely replicated the inhospitable landscape of Mars.
  • Data gathered from the resulting crew interactions and behavioral patterns in these tests will be vital to planning actual missions to Mars in years to come. The 2016 project was the longest U.S. space simulation mission to date.
  • Gifford, a neuroscientist, practices medicine at Barnes-Jewish Hospital and has been working on various space-exploration projects since 1997.
