With prototype space suits and diets consisting only of freeze-dried food, science fiction has become reality for people who choose to simulate living on another planet. Space simulations and analogs are the scientifically funded frontier to test the psychological ramifications of space exploration directly on humans and our robot counterparts. This series is a visual anthology of an experience to the Cosmos that blurs the line between reality and fantasy; a realm where the air is unbreathable, contact with loved ones is limited, and the dependence on your crew becomes center focus.
