PMAS 2017 will be the first Mars analogue mission in Poland. In this two-week mission, a crew of six analogue astronauts will conduct scientific research and record their results while confined to a newly relocated habitat, the Modular Analogue Research Station (M.A.R.S.) in Pila (nearPoznan),Poland — provided by the PMAS 2017 partner, the Space Garden Company — to simulate real planetary exploration conditions. Fully isolated from the rest of the world, the astronauts’ only communication with the outside world will be through a 15-minute time-delayed link (in Mars mode) with the 30 international students and young professionals making up the Flight Support Team (FST), in the Mission Support Centre (MSC), 89 miles away, located in the offices of ABM Space — an innovative, dynamically developing company which creates prime hardware and software applications for space and earth use — in Torun, Poland. The astronaut team includes: João Lousada (Portugal), Poonam Josan (India/USA), Yael Kisel (Israel/USA/Mexico), Jennifer Pouplin (France), Axel Garcia (USA), and Cody Paige (Canada).

The Poland Mars Analogue Simulation 2017 (PMAS 2017) will also include a 3-day lunar simulation (Near-Realtime Communication) in partnership with ESA, in accordance with ESA's plans of returning to the Moon, establishing a human presence, and building a lunar base there before sending humans on to Mars.
