Volunteers Needed for 45-Day HERA Study

NASA-JSC Test Subject Screening is recruiting volunteers for a 68-day study (including training and post-data collection) to simulate flight operations and confinement. Subjects will spend 45 days in confined habitation in the Human Exploration Research Analog (HERA) facility at JSC. Researchers will collect blood, urine and saliva; study personal behaviors; and evaluate team cohesion, cognition and communication.

We are seeking healthy non-smokers ages 30 to 55. You must pass a JSC physical and psychological assessment to qualify. Subjects must take no medications, have no dietary restrictions, have a BMI of 29 or less, be 74 inches or less in height and have no history of sleepwalking. Volunteers must also have highly technical skills and a Master of Science degree in a science, technology, engineering or math discipline or equivalent years of experience.

Volunteers will be compensated.
