03/20/2009MDRS Crew 78 Final Commander Report
If interplanetary colonization is to be possible, humanity needs to learn as much as possible about how to rise to the challenges involved. One way to achieve this is, of course, through simulations. Our crew, the 78th in the Mars Desert Research Station simulation, was intensively international, composed of 2 Canadians (Kathryn Denning, Vincent Beaudry), 2 Americans (Judah Epstein, Grier Wilt), one Belgian (Dirk Geeroms) and one Indian (Balwant Rai). None of us had met before, and joining together to overcome language barriers and explore cultural differences provided us with an intense intercultural experience, surely akin to those which will be a part of future space exploration.
