ISS Cosmonauts Model Manually Controlled Landing on Mars

ZVYOZDNY GORODOK, March 19 (RIA Novosti) - For the first time, two Russian cosmonauts simulated a manually controlled landing from the orbit on Mars after they spent half a year in the space, a deputy head of the Russian Space Training Center said on Monday.

Cosmonauts Oleg Novitsky and Yevgeny Tarelkin, who returned from the International Space Station (ISS) on Saturday after spending there 143 days, used a centrifuge at the Space Training Center in Moscow Region’s Star City, to successfully imitate a manually controlled landing on Mars.
