    Six Russian women will spend eight days in a confined space simulating a flight to the Moon.

    The experiment will be taking place from October 28 to November 4 under the auspices of the Russian Academy of Sciences' Institute of Biomedical Problems (IBP).

    The isolation experiment "Moon-2015" simulates an eight-day-long flight from the Earth to the Moon and aims at testing the psychology and physiology of the female organism.

    Ten volunteers selected from post-graduate students and research associates were preparing for the test but only six of them will actually participate.
