The international crew of researchers conducted a mock landing on Mars after 257 days of confinement in an isolated module to imitate a flight to the Red Planet. Wang Yue, Chinese volunteer for the Mars 500 simulation of a manned spaceflight, will step out of the cabin of the experiment's "spaceship" and walk on a simulation of the Martian surface in four days, according to the plan.(Source:Chinanews.com)
