China life support lab breaks record
China set a world record for the longest stay in a self-contained "cabin” when two men and two women volunteered and spent 200 days in a simulated space lab in Beijing. The group of biomedicine students stayed in Yuegong-1, also known as Lunar Palace 1and completed the second phase of the 365-day on-ground experiment Friday. Now, another group which had stayed in the lab for 60 days earlier will replace this group for the third and final phase which will last 105 days.
The experiment was designed to see how the Bioregenerative Life Support System (BLSS), in which animals, plants and microorganisms co-exist, works in a lunar environment, as well as the physical and mental conditions of humans in such an environment.
