What do our bodies and minds go through during space travel? Without using rockets there is no way to find out, unless we find a place on Earth that is similar enough to the conditions of outer space. The one location that holds the key to this mystery is Antarctica. With its cold, dark and lonely winters, it is an ideal place for simulating space travel. Join us as we meet a medical scientist who has spent the last year in Antarctica testing the limits of human endurance to discover more about what a trip to Mars might really be like.
