MARSIM

Climatic chambers at ambient pressure (with air or other gases) are also used to simulate a pressurised environment or a planetary environment such as Mars.

Thermal vacuum cycling / thermal balance with solar illumination to simulate Mars environment. Ability to reproduce Mars environment (10mbar CO2).
