Throughout the winter the Halley team members participated in a suite of experiments ran by European Space Agency. At the same time, similar experiments were conducted at another Antarctic Station, Concordia, as well as on a control group in Stuttgart in Germany. The experiments included sleep study, motor skills, and my favourite one, flying the Soyuz spacecraft in a range of scenarios covering docking to the International Space Station. All results from these experiments will be used for planning the manned missions to Mars!
