An international team of analog astronauts spent 15 days on a remote facility offering moon mission simulations. The mission took place in a repurposed nuclear bunker on a former military airport in northwestern Poland. The crew members participated in various experiments during the mission. This included psychological and physiological reactions to a lack of natural light for 15 days, a strict freeze-dried food diet, and every two days we participated in Extravehicular Activities (EVA) simulations, exploring the surface of the moon’s surface.
Benjamin Pothier is an elected fellow international of the Explorers Club and a human factor expert for the International Astronautical Federation’s human spaceflight committee. When posed with what he would take on a simulated mission to the MOON, his packing list included the EMOTIV EPOC – our mobile EEG headset, which is designed for scalable and contextual human brain research and provides access to professional grade brain data with a quick and easy to use design, and can record high resolution brain data. This was an essential device for Benjamin’s human factor experiment.
