Mars500, is the simulation of a human mission to Mars, started 520 days ago, on 3 June 2010, at Moscow, just finished its 520 days successfully. In this simulated mission six brave astronauts spend 520 days in their “spacecraft” and performed hundreds of drill task. Get the details with 15min video showing their 520 days below.

Mars500, the European Space Agency’s mission held in the Institute of Biomedical Problems in Moscow, started 520 days ago on June 3, 2010. The international crew were isolated in their interplanetary spacecraft mock-up, faithfully following the phases of a real mission: a long flight to Mars, insertion into orbit around the planet, landing, surface exploration, return to orbit, a monotonous return flight and arrival at Earth. The mission cost $15 million and, although it could not replicate every aspect of a real flight to Mars (such as constant low gravity conditions), it had the crew perform more than 100 experiments with limited consumables and communications with Earth being artificially delayed and, at times, disrupted.

The crew of three Russians, one Chinese and two Europeans have performed exceptionally well. They have kept together and showed that motivation and team spirit can keep humans going under very difficult conditions. Scientists are pleased at their exceptional discipline. They will go through a series of tests, debriefings and evaluations until early December, when the mission officially ends.

“Thank you very much for your outstanding effort,” said ESA’s Director General Jean-Jacques Dordain in his greeting from Paris after the crew stepped from their module.

“I welcome the courage, determination and generosity of these young people who have devoted almost two years of their lives to this project, for the progress of human space exploration.”
