👩‍🚀 Analog Astronaut Missions


As part of our commitment to safety, collaboration, trust, and integrity, we're actively working on integrating the International Guidelines and Standards for Space Analogs into our practices.



Earth-based simulations and experiments that replicate the conditions and challenges of space travel to test technologies, train astronauts, conduct research, and inspire public engagement in space exploration.



Use Simulated Real Space Environments to train astronauts, unlock cost-effective testing, skyrocket research and innovation, ignite public engagement and inspiration. All for Earth benefit and beyond.

Groundbreaking science R&D

Exciting space walks

The typical daily routine is a mix of tasks. From conducting experiments, maintaining equipment, documenting findings, simulate daily life in confined spaces, engage in communication protocols, and participate in psychological studies. All this is done to prepare for real space missions while contributing to space research and public engagement.

Extravehicular Activities (EVAs) closely replicate spacewalks, using spacesuits and performing tasks in microgravity-simulating environments. These simulations are crucial for training, testing equipment, and conducting research relevant to actual space missions. EVAs help astronauts develop essential skills, ensure safety, and advance technology while providing insights into the challenges of working in space.

And live like an astronaut!

Train hard, live easy

Balancing well-being, fostering success

Everyday life includes strict physical fitness schedules, daily simulations, communication drills, psychological studies, and regular testing of emergency response drills. The aim is to train astronauts for real space missions, putting the human body into extreme conditions

Space missions include tons of other activities, all crucial for their overall well-being and the successful execution of the mission. Sleeping is vital to maintain physical and mental health, as it allows the body to rest and recover. Cooking and eating play a significant role in providing essential nutrition and fostering team bonding through shared meals. Stargazing is a leisure activity that not only offers relaxation but also a connection to the environment, fostering a deeper appreciation of their unique off-world experience.

Next missions 🤫

4️⃣ crew members

1️⃣4️⃣ days missions

🍂Fall 2️⃣0️⃣2️⃣4️⃣

Habitat locations

We look for:

🌟 Extreme Isolation - No contact with humans, away from the lights and sounds of our civilization, no communication

🌟 Extreme Terrain - Lunar, Martian or deep space like environments in terms of soil and absence of flora and water bodies.


High altitude

Thin air, extreme temperatures, clear sky for observing the stars



Limited light, natural temperature control, geology exploration

Lift off ! 🚀
