Only one day remains for the three University of North Dakota students simulating life in space inside a lunar habitat.

The group was able to skype with Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas. The three-man habitat crew spoke with Astronaut Stan Love and a few members from NASA's Anologue Mission department.

The call to Houston has been a work in progress over the past couple weeks thanks to the lunar habitat's mission control crew. Prior to the call to Houston the astronauts were very excited to relate their experiences to those of Stan Love, an astronaut who was on the Space Shuttle Atlantis and conducted tests for NASA similar to those that UND is conducting.

Tim: "He's also done some missions in the under-sea NEEMO experiments so we're interested to talk to him about those," said crew member Tim Buli.

For those interested, the crew will be exiting the habitat this Wednesday at 10 AM, and there will be a media conference at 11 AM in Clifford Hall room 210.
