No men? No problem

MOSCOW (AP) — Before six Russian women began an eight-day simulation of a voyage to the moon, they had to answer a key question: How could they cope for such a long time without men or makeup?

The six women climbed into a mock-up spaceship last Wednesday to imitate a lunar flight. Russia’s space medicine center has conducted previous isolation experiments, including one in which six males spent 500 days in a cramped, windowless module to imitate a Mars mission.

In response to the question, Participant Anna Kussmaul said “we’re working on fulfilling our tasks, and when you’re doing your work, you don’t think about men.”
