The location of the experiment laid somewhere in the vicinity of “Mitzpe Ramon”, an isolated township of Israel, for the surrounding landscape of the remote town is a befitting resemblance to “the Martian environment in its geology, aridity, appearance and desolation”. Several subjects related to “future Mars mission” was dealt with whereby including “satellite communications, the psychological affects of isolation, radiation measurements and searching for life signs in soil”.
 
One of the participants of the said experiment was Guy Ron, a “nuclear physics professor” of Jerusalem’s Hebrew University, who informed the project had a dual purpose of exploring “new approaches in designing a future mission to the Red Planet” besides increasing “public interest”. In his words:
“D-Mars is half about the research, and the other half is about the outreach. A major part of this project is getting public interest and getting students interested in space”.
 
It was the first time that Israel held the “D-Mars” Project in collaboration with “Israel Space Agency” and “is one of a number of Mars simulation projects taking place worldwide”.
