Lunar and Mars Soil Simulant

NASA's exploration plans for Mars and beyond created an immediate need for materials science and technology research to enable safe human travel and work on future planetary exploration and long-duration missions. Part of the research requires the use of Martian soil simulants for materials experiments, prototype testing and dust mitigation of transportation equipment, advanced life support systems and in situ resource processing.

Researchers, educators, students and interested commercial parties may purchase simulant from eight tons of JSC Mars-1A, a Martian soil simulant that approximates the spectral reflectance of the bright areas on Mars.

Mars Soil Simulant JSC MARS-1A SIMULANT
JSC Mars-1A is a palagonite tephra collected from the slopes of the Pu’u Nene cinder cone on the Island of Hawaii. Palagonitic tephra from this cone has been repeatedly cited as a close spectral analog to the bright regions of Mars. The chemical composition is compared to that of a typical Mars surface sample analyzed at the Viking lander 1 site.
