After their 250-day virtual 'flight' to Mars, the candidates on the Mars500 study at the Moscow Institute for Biomedical Problems will also be simulating a landing on the planet, and a return to Earth. The experiment will last for a total of 520 days. Here we see the Frenchman Romain Charles trying on a spacesuit for this study.
