In Israel’s arid, hot Ramon Crater in the country’s south, scientists from around the world are studying what life is like on planet Mars.
Organized by the Israel Space Agency and the Austrian Space Forum, astronauts from Austria, Germany, Israel, the Netherlands, Portugal and Spain are living in isolation in a virtual station until the end of the month.
