Caption

Mars-500 facility, exterior view. The Mars-500 project was conducted between 2007 and 2011 at the Russian Institute of Biomedical Problems (IBMP) in Moscow, Russia. The final stage, held from 3 June 2010 to 4 November 2011, placed six crew members in the isolation facility seen here. This simulated a 520-day mission to Mars, and included a 30-day 'landing' period using spacesuits in a simulated Martian landscape. The aim was to study the psychological and medical aspects of long-duration human spaceflights. Earlier stages of the project were shorter, such as a 105-day simulation held between March and July 2009.
