Imagine a life on Mars at the Desert Research Station

Posted: Updated:
HANKSVILLE, Utah -

Since NASA retired the space shuttle, manned space exploration for Americans is on hold. We can't even get to the international space station without asking the Russians for a ride.

And when it comes to a mission to Mars, are we falling even further behind? Just ask the Russians.

People are experiencing life on Mars -- sort of -- at the Mars Desert Research Station just outside of Hanksville, Utah. Outside, this part of the Utah desert sure looks like Mars.

The Desert Research Station is operated by the Mars Society, which has raised more than a million to run the station and promote a mission to Mars.

Press play for more.
