JSC2004-E-43624 (October 2004) --- Dean Eppler, equipped with a Mark-III suit, takes a stroll in Arizona's high desert as part of a NASA-led team using the rugged terrain and variegated climate to try out prototype spacesuits and innovative equipment that may help America pursue the Vision for Space Exploration to return the Moon and travel beyond. The Desert Research and Technology Studies (RATS) team is led by scientists from the Johnson Space Center and the Glenn Research Center. Eppler spent a number of long sessions attired in the planetary surface exploration suit technology demonstrator as he interfaced with much of the gear used during the field trip.
