Summary:An analog astronaut is a person who conducts activities in simulated space conditions. Ground-based studies involving analog astronauts are conducted by many laboratories, facilities, and research centers around the world. Analog astronauts engage in a wide range of research such as human physiology, psychology, crew cohesion, exercise, and nutritional studies along with testing cutting-edge science, technology, and engineering applications. Analog missions are recognized by NASA and are seen as an important part of space exploration. Our mission is to build community among analog astronauts worldwide and to provide information on analog astronaut training, analog simulations, and aerospace educational resources so that everyone can participate in space exploration.
