Out in the desert in Arizona, “similar astronauts” gathered this weekend for an annual conference in a giant, futuristic habitat known as Biosphere 2.

The event, known as the Analog Astronaut Conference, is an annual gathering that showcases the work of “similar astronauts”, or researchers who have completed simulated space missions, live and work in habitats on Earth that simulate the living conditions expected in destinations such as Mars or the moon.
