Astronomy Extra-Vehicular Activities

Astronomy is an integral activity for crews and allows teams to conduct night EVAs and the challenges of reduce light whilst traversing the terrain. Additionally, AEVA offers a chance for astronauts to be inspired and to immerse themselves in the wonders of the Universe by observing the night sky, the Stars and Planets on the surface of analog Mars.

During this activity, you will participate in an amateur photo-astronomy project using a commercial telescope to observe and collect images of celestial bodies  and planets in the night sky. The images will be integrated into the “Artronaut and Alchemnaut” Project as part of the “Astro-Wellness Program”TM
