I may be a new guy around here and thus dont want to make any enemies or annoy anyone but I really dont understand !
The original post was alluding to the fact that the Russian space agency are on the brink of sending a manned mission to mars. Cue lots of crowing
from the originator and much defensive shots from the responders ?! Has anyone actually bothered to read the link before getting into this 'we are
better than you' one-upmanship ?
The link states that the russian space agency has been planning for a manned mission to mars for thirty years ! So has NASA !
The link goes on to say that this is a GROUND BASED SIMULATION, based outside Mocow, of the projected 500 day flight and and an investigation into the
effects on the occupants - who are called Investigators, not Cosmonauts !
There is NO mission to mars !!! If this is a mission then we can all go to mars. Get in ur living rooms, buy 20 crates of beer and ten packs of
pringles, turn on the tv, plan not to come out for two years, and its Mars here we come
