One of them is related to the Planet Mars exploration mission. This mission is to take photos along with data on the planet, in the form of data on the atmospheric composition, density, pressure and Mars temperature, as well as the surface composition, temperature and topography of the planet.
The United States Space Agency or NASA sent spacecraft on the Mariner project, along with the Soviet Union that sent Mars missions.
The two ships managed to reach the Mars orbit and map the surface of the planet and send the results to scientists on the planet. However, NASA's Mariner 9 spacecraft has been registered as the first vehicle to reach Mars's orbit.

After that, another mission was prepared. Named Mission V, this mission requires the crew to live in a place with conditions that resemble Planet Mars.
In addition to simulating life on Mars, this mission also aims to prepare astronauts that will go to Mars and see the psychological effects.
The chosen place is Big, a remote island in Hawaii. The crew was stationed at an installation at the University of Hawaii in Hawaii's analog and exploratory simulation (HI-SEAS) on Mauna Loa volcano.
