'Half-time' for Mars 500; on 12 February 2011, after a 250-day simulated flight to Mars, three crewmembers will land on the Red Planet. They will climb out of their isolation pod two days later at the Moscow Institute for Biomedical Problems (IBMP) and begin a simulated exploration of Mars. Their eight-month return journey will commence in early March. "The 11 German experiments carried out so far have been completed with extreme professionalism and high accuracy," says Peter Gräf from the German Aerospace Center (DLR), who is responsible for managing the German part of the project.
