China is actively preparing to send a man to the moon

While Elon Musk talks about how going to live out their days on Mars, the Chinese government is slowly preparing the ground for . Four volunteers from among the graduates of one of the best Chinese universities of Aeronautics will live for 200 days in an isolated laboratory in preparation for future lunar missions. The experiment began on Sunday. The participants were locked in the room area of 160 square meters in the next few months.

became the third country in the world (after the USA and Russia), which managed to make a soft landing on the lunar surface in December 2013. Now the Chinese government is focused on building spacecraft capable of delivering to a satellite of the Earth the first Chinese astronaut. The mission is planned over the next 15-20 years. The Chinese leadership argues that the main purpose of delivering people to the moon is purely scientific interest. However, the U.S. government suspects China in the implementation of its war plans, therefore, Congress forbade NASA to collaborate with scientists from China in this direction.

The layout of the lunar lab, located in the Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics called "Lunar Palace 1" (Yuegong-1). The laboratory was commissioned on may 10, after which several volunteers spent in a confined space for 60 days. Now the time of the experiment increased more than in two times. The room consists of a living module, and two modules for the cultivation of plants. All the waste of the astronauts will undergo the process of bio fermentation. As soon as the 200-day experiment was completed, to replace the test will take the next group, which will meet in the lab for additional 105 days. As a result, three groups of researchers want to conduct inside complex exactly 365 days.
