NASA's next stop in the quest to find Martian life: Hawaii.
Researchers partnering with the federal space agency will travel to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park to prepare for future manned missions to the red planet.
The project, called Biologic Analog Science Associated with Lava Terrains, will last two weeks. The national park's rough terrain is similar to what astronauts might encounter on Mars.
