A team of four (landbound) space pioneers have emerged from 110 days in isolation in a “lunar lab” designed to approximate living conditions in a moon base.
Moon base volunteers emerge after 110 days in isolation
China is planning to send its astronauts to the moon, although not for at least a decade.
The United States is performing similar experiments: in 2017 it performed an eight-month isolation study in preparation for a potential colony on Mars. NASA hopes to send humans to the planet by 2030.
South China Morning Post photographer Simon Song went to see the Chinese sqad of four emerge from the glowing pink chamber.
