LunAres Research Station is an analog research station for crewed space mission simulation, located at the post-military airport in Poland. The station can hold a Lunar and Martian 2 weeks mission for a 6-person crew. The facility provides space and infrastructure for complex research on the impact of long-term extra-terrestrial human presence.
The general objective of LunAres is to create a research platform to support scientific and technological development in crewed space exploration. The broad range of specialists are involved in the study from fields like extreme medicine, psychology, biotechnology, robotics and engineering, sociology, architecture.
Conducted research focuses on human factors in crewed space missions as well as testing of sustainable and innovative technologies. The base is fully isolated from the environment including 250 square meters of EVA area.
