EDITORIAL INFORMATION

The human exploration of Mars, both the robotic missions of the past and present and future crewed and robotic missions, can only take place on a foundation of comparative trials, tests, and simulations that investigate every discipline required to achieve the mission goals. That foundation comes broadly under the description of Mars analog research, the theme of the 18 papers in this 111th volume of the American Astronautical Society's Science and technology Series. Includes a CD-ROM.

(Extracted from the Foreword).
