Women who spent at Mars two weeks - at 39-40 years. Team had to spend a few scientific experiments and explore the wilderness in suits and perform several other tasks that are likely to be on the agenda for any team, which landed on Mars first.

"There is abundant evidence that women are as successful as men are able to cope with microgravity and other challenges of space, and in some respects - even surpass the stronger sex, but the space agency characterizes women as" too fragile "for a mission to Mars" - says the team psychologist Cheryl Bishop. - But who knows? Perhaps the woman will still be the first man on the Red Planet. "
