Mission to Mars simulation to start in Moscow


www.telegraph.co.uk

Six men have begun a gruelling simulated mission to Mars that will see them spend almost a year and a half locked up in a mock spaceship deep inside a Russian laboratory.

The unusual isolation experiment, called Mars 500, is designed to probe humankind's ability to undertake long-distance space travel even though a manned mission to the Red Planet remains years away.

Participants will not experience weightlessness or the higher radiation levels associated with such travel but organisers say the experience will nonetheless be authentic.

The crew, made up of three Russians, a Chinese man, a Frenchman and an Italian, will spend 520 days locked up in a "spaceship" forged from metal tubing in Russia's Moscow-based Institute for Biomedical Problems.

Their task is to conduct dozens of experiments and simulate a flight to and from Mars, as well as a landing and a series of 'spacewalks' on the Red Planet.

Participants are not professional astronauts but volunteers who were chosen because they had specific medical and technical skills.

i dont know what to make of this, i think the moon landing was real and what they found made them try to cover it up like it was a hoax...
