Mars-500 greenhouse experiment. Romain Charles (France, ESA) with the 'Greenhouses in Space' experiment. 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 an isolation facility to simulate a 520-day mission to Mars. The aim was to study the psychological and medical aspects of long-duration human spaceflights. This photograph was taken on 17 March 2011 during the 'return trip' from Mars (240 days from March to November 2011).
