Mars-500 spacesuit tests. Mars-500 crew members testing their Russian Orlan spacesuits before their mission started in June 2010. 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. It included a 30-day 'landing' period using spacesuits in this simulated Martian landscape.
