Abstract
Terrestrial analogs serve four key functions: we use them 1) to learn (by comparison); 2) to test (hardware, hypotheses, strategies); 3) to train (crews and ground personnel); and 4) to engage (international partners, the public, students). Analog sites are often chosen to serve as many functions as possible. However, the most important consideration in the use of an analog site is its fidelity for the usage sought.
