UND's 10-day simulation of moon mission is over; 30-day mission is next
The three UND students took a gulp of fresh air Wednesday as they left the long, windowless tube that has served as home for the past 10 days. Like astronauts returning to Earth, they savored things like blue sky and the ability to walk around unencumbered by a 25-pound canvas suit. The...
