In China, ended the "moon" experiment

60
The annual experiment on imitation of life on the moon, which became a world record for its duration of people in an isolated space, ended in China, reports RIA News message "Xinhua."




“The experiment that began on 10 last May lasted a total of 370 days. It was divided into three phases: 60, 200 and 110 days. In total, eight volunteer students participated in the experiment, and each of them took turns to live in a cabin, ”the message says.

The previous record belonged to the Soviet group of three people who were in the confined space of 180 days (1970's).

According to the agency, the experiment took place in the Yuegun-1 laboratory (“Lunar Palace-1”, located at Beihang China State Technical University), which “is an isolated cabin with an area of ​​160 square meters”. This is the third bioregenerative base of life support in the world.

According to the information, “The Moon Palace” consists of a module for the life of volunteers with an area of ​​42 square meters and two modules for growing plants; there are four separate sleeping modules in the living compartment, one common room, a bathroom, rooms for animals, a room for recycling. ”

On Tuesday, to the applause of academics and researchers, four volunteers left the laboratory - two girls and two young men.

According to the chief designer of the laboratory, Liu Hong, “the experiment was the longest being in a bio-generating life support system in which people, animals, plants, and microorganisms coexist in a closed environment imitating the lunar base.” Oxygen, water and food are recycled in the system, creating an environment like on Earth.

He said that "the system on 98% is self-supporting, and it worked stably and efficiently, providing support for the lives of its passengers."

During the experiment, volunteers grew wheat, strawberries and other plants.

The system worked well. There were many different vegetables in the booth for food,
tale one of the volunteers.

According to the designer, the participants "had access to the Internet, could play chess, practice yoga, learn English and listen to the radio." Once a week they had to undergo a medical examination.

Scientists will analyze the data and on the basis of their conclusions construct a "more compact bio-generating life support system, which in the future may be installed in space laboratories and probes for the exploration of the Moon and Mars," the agency concludes.

              Very interesting.
              I immediately recall "Biosphere-2", a similar American experiment. It failed because, as it turned out, the concrete of the base of the building absorbed oxygen, which made the air unusable in a closed system.
              No money was found to repeat the experiment. Well done Chinese. It’s not only them, it is useful to the whole world.

      On the one hand, the United States has an extra heavy load (Falcon Heavy) to complete an even more powerful SLS, as well as finalizing the Orion ship and thus closer to the landing, on the other hand they are constantly carried between Mars, the Moon and simply unmanned explorations. And China is quietly and measuredly moving forward.

    I think before a real flight to the moon in order to build an inhabited base there, the same experiment will be conducted, but already under water, say at a depth of 50 m.
    This will be more realistic and will help to obtain more objective data on the project.

      But the meaning of all this city? with the same success and much cheaper, you can settle in the Sahara (during the day the heat on the Moon is more than 100 degrees Celsius (there is no atmosphere that holds ultraviolet), but at night the frost is below 100 degrees (record of Antarctica minus 80) so it is better to settle in Antarctica or the desert than the Moon, on which in addition there is nothing to breathe.

        There are a lot of minerals on the Moon, also due to the lack of oxygen and lower gravity, it is possible to obtain extremely pure materials and alloys.
        An inhabited lunar base would be extremely useful as a springboard for further space exploration, as well as the further development of science.
        An experiment under water would allow testing the equipment in extreme conditions, and the subjects would be in conditions as close as possible to real ones.

    Take and at leisure look at the schedule of the dollar devaluation and the cost of the US lunar program. Today, the United States simply does not have such funds, as has already been written.
    "Technologies of the 60s" is essentially theorization, because they have no industrial embodiment. First you need to spend money and time to recreate them. China does not have them at all. There can be no talk of any Chinese manned flight to the moon.
    There are long-term programs, they promise very good bonuses in the future, but the need for a manned mission now absolutely not. All studies, soil samples, geological exploration, even the construction of an experimental base can be carried out by robotics. It is in this direction that there will be development.
