Six members of the international SIRIUS crew started a 120-day experiment to simulate the flight to the Moon, in Moscow's Institute of Biomedical Problems on Tuesday.
The experiment is said to reproduce the basic characteristics of a flight to the Moon, paving the way for future space missions.
The first stage of SIRIUS experiment was completed on November 24, 2017. During the 17-day simulation, the crew reached lunar orbit, flew around the Moon and returned to the Earth.
