The Mars Desert Research Station

Heading to the Utah desert is my favorite part of the year! Thanks to The Mars Society, to the Mars Desert Research Station (MDRS) and to my crews! I have been Commander of Crew 172, 185, 196 and 200, and Crew Engineer in 158. This is a unique experience in leadership during which I have experienced the good and the bad side of a developing leadership. A special thanks to the Director of MDRS, Dr. S. Rupert, a great lady and a great mentor for me.
