(KSL News) An experimental Mars spacesuit will soon be tested in Utah.

It was designed in North Dakota with a $100,000 grant from NASA. Utah was chosen for the test because researchers say it has the most Mars-like terrain in the nation.

They say the test will help them solve problems outside a controlled environment, just as an astronaut would be forced to do on Mars.
