Scientists learn more about human physiology and psychology during isolation

However, The experiment will help scientists learn more about human physiology and psychology during isolation. The research has become critical, as nations work towards sending humans to the lunar surface and to Mars.

Moreover, These astronauts will face several challenges during lengthy space voyages. Including spending time away from family, working as a team and health risks from radiation.

The UAE has also announced plans to work with partners in exploring the possibilities of sending Emiratis to the Moon.

It also has ambitious plans to build a city on Mars by 2117.

“The analog mission will provide crucial data that will help us undertake more ambitious space exploration challenges, including for the Mars 2117 program,” said Adnan Al Rais, manager of the Mars 2117 program.

The experiment is part of a five-year research program by Russia’s Institute of Biomedical Problems and Nasa’s Human Research Programme.

It involves three Sirius missions, the first of which ended in 2019. After six crew members lived in isolation for four months.

Participants will be sealed inside tubular modules. With cameras watching them around the clock.

The structure has its own atmosphere and air pressure to create a space-like environment.
