Train­ing for space flight

The Guardian Weekly - - Discovery -

Three men and three women were sealed in an ar­ti­fi­cial space­craft unit in Moscow last week in a sim­u­la­tion of a 17-day flight to the moon, a prepa­ra­tion for long-term mis­sions. The ex­per­i­ment is the first of sev­eral in the Sir­ius (Sci­en­tific In­ter­na­tional Re­search In a Unique ter­res­trial Sta­tion) pro­gramme, which over the course of five years will grad­u­ally in­crease the iso­la­tion ex­per­i­ment to 365 days.
