SGAC’s PMAS 2017 Mission, hosted by the Space Exploration Project Group (SEPG), will be the first combined Moon-Mars analogue mission in Poland. In this two-week mission, a crew of six analogue astronauts will conduct scientific research and record their results while confined to a newly constructed habitat, LUNARES provided by the Space Garden Company — to simulate real planetary exploration conditions. Fully isolated from the rest of the world, the astronauts’ only communication with the outside world will be through a 15-minute time-delayed link (in Mars mode) with the 30 international students and young professionals making up the Flight Support Team (FST), in the Mission Support Centre (MSC), located 89 miles away in the offices of ABM Space in Torun, Poland. The first three days of this mission will be dedicated to Lunar exploration in collaboration on the International Lunar Exploration Working Group and the European Space Agency Moon Village Project. The rest of the mission will be dedicated for Mars Exploration.
