We've been 'in sim' for three days now. The main consequence here at MDRS is that we can't go outside without our spacesuits on. Although our suits are not real life support systems, they do mimic the bulk, weight and general awkwardness of a real suit. Figuring out how to do field research in a heavy suit with thick gloves and little peripheral vision is no picnic, but that's exactly what we're here to do.
