All eight people will receive room and board, meals, and tickets to and from a preliminary training workshop at Ithaca, New York and to the study facility on the Big Island of Hawaii, and a cash bonus at the end of the completed study.
A total of $5,000 will be given to each applicant -- (excluding room and board, meals, and other such expenses)
Go to 'Apply now for the Cornell/University of Hawaii Mars Analogue Mission and Food Study!' to apply to become a NASA simulation astronaut.
The website states, 'We are seeking participants for a 120 day Mars exploration analogue mission (Hawaii Space Exploration Analogue & Simulation, or HI-SEAS), to take place in early 2013 on the Big Island of Hawaii. DEADLINE: FEB 29 2012.'
Actually, the deadline is: 11:59 p.m. Hawaii time on February 29th, 2012, so you don't have much time left to apply.
The website also cautions: 'A participant choosing to leave the study during a mission will forfeit any completion bonuses and will become responsible for any fees associated with changes in his or her travel plans. A participant dropped from the study for medical or psychological reasons will be paid a prorated completion bonus and will be reimbursed for fees associated with changes in his or her travel plans.'
