Description

On a remote mountain in Hawaii, there's a fake planet Mars. Six volunteers are secluded in an imitation Mars habitat where they will work as imitation astronauts for one very real year. The goal: to help NASA understand what life might be like on the red planet—and plan for the day when the dress rehearsals are over, and we blast off for real. Host Lynn Levy has been chronicling this experiment from the moment the crew set foot in their habitat, communicating with them through audio diaries that detail their discoveries, their frustrations, and their evolving and devolving relationships with each other. From those diaries, Gimlet Media has crafted an addictive serialized documentary: the true story of a fake planet.

It wasn't clear that this is HI-SEAS IV. Makes it seem like I, also it would be nice to hear about the previous experiments and what is known from say Arctic stations and the space station.

why do they not address the Biosphere 2 up front. honestly this is what made me stop listening because of the premise that this experiment is the first of it's kind... false.

Was hoping for a deeper look into the psyche of those confined and forced to interact solely with one another for one year. Instead we got little hints of a romance, silly horse play, and "tortilla."

I can't put my finger on why, but Tristan was really annoying in this episode.

Fantastic first episode. I expected a fun, voyeuristic look at a group and got something way more emotional.
