Six volunteers have returned to Earth after spending four months on Mars.

The volunteers lived for four months inside a simulated Mars base on top of a Hawaiian volcano, as part of a NASA project to better understand what future astronauts will need to survive on the red planet.

Interviewer: Richard Ewart

Speaker: Casey Stedman, Mission Commander, Second Hawaii Space Exploration Analog Simulation of Mars (Hi-SEAS)
