List of Mars analogs simulate aspects of the conditions people could experience during a future mission to Mars.

For example, in the 1960s the Soviets confined three cosmonauts for a year to prepare for longer space missions.[1] Modern examples include an 120-day study in Hawaii to test a space food diet,[2] and equipment tests inside Austrian mountain caves in 2012.[3]

Among these are:
