A team of researchers from the University of Hawaii at Manoa and Cornell University are asking people to enter a recipe contest for meals they'll serve during a simulated mission to Mars.

Staff and crew of the Hawaii Space Exploration Analog and Simulation mission will select finalist recipes, taking popular vote into account.

The crew will test these recipes during a simulated mission scheduled to start in April. Winners will be announced at the end of the mission in August.

The four recipe categories include breakfast, main dish, side dishes and desserts (or snacks.)

Recipe submissions are being accepted online through March 8 at www.hi-seas.org.

The simulated mission aims to help NASA determine the best way to keep astronauts well-nourished during multiple-year missions to Mars or the moon.
