Yusuke Murakami: The Key to Living Harmoniously in Extreme Environments
Our guest, Yusuke Murakami, is a field architect who studies extreme living environments. He's spent over 1,000 days in the field, including the Himalayas and Antarctica. In 2017, he led an international team as Executive Officer on a 160-day Mars simulation mission in the Utah desert and the Arctic. This year, he converted a decommissioned Antarctic icebreaker into a spaceship to launch his own space simulation. His ultimate goal is to enable people from diverse backgrounds to live in harmony in a confined environment for prolonged periods.
