Ross Brockwell, CE 99, is one of four crew members selected to embark on NASA's first one-year analog mission in a habitat to simulate living on Mars. During the ground-based mission, set to begin in June at the agency’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, the crew will live and work in a 3D-printed, 1,700-square-foot habitat.
