NASA Considering Space Station for Mars Dry Run
By Marcia Dunn
The International Space Station may provide the setting for a 500-day pretend trip to Mars in another few years.
NASA said Tuesday that consideration is under way to use the space station as a dry run for a simulated trip to and from Mars.
It would be patterned after Russia's mock flight to Mars that lasted 520 days at a Moscow research center . Six men were involved in that study, which ended late last year. They were locked in a steel capsule.
