Large Mars Chamber

This facility is capable of recreating the martian environment (-70°C to 110°C, 6mbar, CO2/N2 atmosphere) with UV illumination.

The key characteristic of this chamber is its large size, measuring 0.9 m diameter and 1.8 m in length (see image below).

The facility can therefore be used for large scale simulation of the martian surface (aeolian transport etc) or to accomodate large instruments/structures for testing (e.g. rover mechanisms, traction etc).
