Portrait of Carmel Johnston

Carmel Johnston

Carmel Johnston recently finished serving as Commander of the Hawaii Space Exploration Analog and Simulation, where she and five other people lived in complete isolation for an entire year.

With a Masters of Science in Land Resources and Environmental Sciences from Montana State University, she was able to apply her passion for science and sustainable living to growing fresh vegetables for the crew.

Now that she is out of the dome, she is taking full advantage of being able to run, hike, swim, and play outside in her hometown in Montana.
