Six scientists, completely isolated from the outside world for 17 days for an experiment imitating a trip to the moon, spoke to the press after completing their mission. Five Russians and one German participating in the experiment, nicknamed ‘SIRIUS’ or the Scientific international research in unique terrestrial station), imitated a space trip to the moon on Friday, after being locked on a terrestrial space capsule for 17 days. The experiment aimed to examine psychological and physical effects of confinement. During the imitation flight, team members performed various scientific experiments in the mock-up spaceship and responded to simulated emergency situations, including medical situations and sleep deprivation.
