NASA, in partnership with the Mars Society, will be leading a series of two-week student training and research missions to the Mars Desert Research Station (MDRS) in Utah. There will be four two-week expeditions mounted in November 2006 through January 2007.

Pending continued support from NASA HQ we expect to continue this program next year and will be accepting applications for next year starting in summer 2007.
