Mars500 crew safely 'landed' - First phase of isolation study ended on 14 July 2009 in Moscow
The 105-day space travel simulation experiment 'Mars 500', based in Moscow with German involvement, has just finished. On 14 July 2009, the crew, including Oliver Knickel, a member of the German Army, left the module system. The six people taking part in the experiment will be subjected to a rigorous series of examinations over the next few days, before returning to their families. DLR is heavily involved in Mars500, alongside other organisations.
