"Mars-105": there are 37 days of "flight". / May 7, 2009 /

Participants of the 105-daily allowance of research experiment in which course flight to Mars is modelled, have spent in land more month.

«There is passed third of way. The six of verifiers» flies «further. Behind, perhaps, one of the most difficult stages — creation of the present command», — representative has informed the Russian Academy of Sciences Pavel Morgunov.

As he said, in spite of the fact that the crew has been generated and checked up in advance, work in isolation has introduced the corrective amendments.

«But to scientists has carried: the crew has worked well together. Under reports of verifiers, first time hung heavy, but now they have got used and at all have not noticed as» flew away «more month. As they said, in the beginning there was a lot of confusion in work, errors, discrepancies. Now all in the past. Work is distributed in regular intervals, even there is time for rest», — P.Morgunov has informed.

He has noticed that all verifiers feel well, complaints are not present.

«It is collected already both a scientific material, and a material for the following of» flight «to Mars, but the most difficult experiments still ahead», — representative ИМБП has told.

105-daily allowances preliminary experiment is spent at Institute of medical and biologic problems in Moscow in which territory the land test complex simulating a spaceship is constructed. Four volunteers take part in experiment from Russia and two representatives of Europe. They live in isolation from an external world since March, 30th.

The given experiment is spent within the limits of the project «Mars-500» and precedes carrying out of 520-daily imitation of flight to Mars and returnings to the Earth. A basis is a series of experiments on long isolation of crew in the conditions of specially created land experimental complex.

Let’s wish good luck to verifiers!
