There is this Mission in the Russian SIRIUS Project, Deliberately Initiated Since 2017

WorldTekhno.comRussia launched the Single Earth Station International Scientific Research (SIRIUS) project initiative this week. A total of six space crew members were isolated for 360 days or one year to mimic spaceflight conditions.

The six isolated crew members are supervised by the legendary Institute of Biomedical Problems (IBMP) of the Russian Academy of Sciences. The mission, known as SIRIUS-23, was the fourth stage of the IBMP isolation experiment.

The SIRIUS (Single Earth Station International Scientific Research) project is an international research project initiated by Russia to study the impact of long-term isolation on humans. The project involved isolating six people for a year in a facility that simulated conditions in outer space.

The SIRIUS project was first launched in 2017 with a 17-day mission. Subsequent missions lasted 120 days (2019) and 240 days (2021). The fourth and newest mission, SIRIUS-27, starts on 21 November 2022 and will last 360 days.

The SIRIUS mission crew consists of astronauts, doctors and scientists from several countries. They live their daily lives in facilities designed to simulate conditions in outer space, which include:

○ Zero gravity
○ Radiation
○ Limited food and water quality.
○ Lack of contact with the outside world.

Scientists involved in the SIRIUS project hope to study the impact of prolonged isolation on various aspects of human health, including:

○ Immune system
○ Mental health
○ Cognitive performance
○ Reproductive capacity
The results of the SIRIUS research project can be used to improve the safety and comfort of astronauts on long-duration space missions.

Below are some research results from the SIRIUS project:

○ After prolonged isolation, astronauts experience a decrease in muscle and bone mass.
○ Astronauts also experience an increased risk of cardiovascular diseases and sleep disorders.
○ However, astronauts did not experience a decline in cognitive function or reproductive ability.

More research is needed to further understand the impact of prolonged isolation on humans.***
