Space Colony On Mars; 180 Days Mock Test By China Successfully Completed

DATE: 15/12/2016

Four Chinese volunteers successfully completed the Space Colony Experiment, in which they stayed inside a closed capsule for 180 days, without any outside resupply of food, water and oxygen. The experiment was designed to explore the physical, emotional and psychological changes that may occur when humans live in closed and isolated environments. Successful completion of this experiment has created optimism among space explorers regarding the plans of setting up human colonies in space.

The capsule was set up in the southern city of Shenzhen. Additionally, the capsule was specifically designed in a manner that it can create and maintain its own internal ecosystem, which involved recycling and regeneration of oxygen without being supplied from the outside, same as in space missions.
