  • Longer description:
    A new Planetary Analogue Terrain Laboratory (PATLab) has been created at Aberystwyth University (AU). The aim of the PATLab is to allow comprehensive mission operations emulation experiments to be performed. This unique facility has a terrain region composed of Mars Soil Simulant-D. It includes ‘science target’ rocks that have been fully characterised, and hence we can compare these results with those generated using the PATLab planetary robotics facilities. The terrain has an area for sub-surface sampling. The total floor area of the PATLab is 100 m2, and half of this has been given over to the terrain region.
