Team lives in ‘Mars area’(P5)
南开中学  王立梅

I. Warming up  
Which planet is this?
How much do you know about it?

Mars was among the first bodies in the Solar System to be viewed through a telescope.
NASA's Mariner and Viking probes in the 1960s and 1970s found a cold, apparently lifeless planet with huge volcanoes and canyons and evidence of past surface floods.
More recently, six-wheeled rovers have confirmed that water ice exists below the surface.

II. Pre-reading
Do you think we will live on Mars one day?
What would it feel like to live on Mars?

A team of six scientists has completed a Mars simulation inside a dome.
The isolation experiments addressed the human element of exploration.
The crew received a warm welcome as they walked out of their dome after a year in isolation.

III. While-reading
1. Where was the Mars simulation project located? What were conditions like?
It was located on the rocky slopes of the Mauna Loa volcano on the island of Hawaii. Its soil is similar to that on Mars and it has high elevation and no plants.

2. If scientists wanted to go out of the dome, what did they have to do?
They had to wear spacesuits, just as they would if they were walking on Mars.

3. Besides the tough living conditions, what other difficulties did they meet?
There was a 20-minute delay in the communications between the crew members and the outside world. There was no privacy for the crew members. And they missed Earth very much.   

4. What can we conclude from the last two paragraphs?
The group were very positive about living on Mars in the future.

IV. Post-reading
Discussion:
1. What do you think of the idea of a Mars simulation?
2. What do you think the team members did for a year in such a small dome?
