    Well they are back now and it don't exactly look like they are ready to start running around the planet. Which make you think... Just how close are we to being able to actually send someone to Mars and not have them taking days to readjust to gravity when they get there. I guess part of this experiment is to see how long it takes them to get back to doing simple tasks but it looked like they had a lot of help getting out of the capsule. Something you are not going to get when you get to Mars. I think before we send someone to Mars I would like to see someone stay on the space station for a year then when they return to earth they get out of the ship and walk to the extraction point. Then I'll believe we are ready to send someone to Mars.

    Quite an achievement but you have to things it's a small stepping stone like one of the early aeroplanes that seem like a joke compared to modern aeroplanes.

    Can't wait to see what comes next.
