I have heard people talking about analog test sites - but I am confused about the word "analog". Aren't we digital these days?

In the space industry it is very valuable to take personnel and equipment to remote sites that resemble surface conditions on an extra-terrestrial surface for testing. These sites are referred to as "analog sites" which is an abbreviation of "analogous environment sites".
