Chinese participants responsible person Baiyan Jiang said: “This test may be in an isolated environment on people’s ability to work, life support system and other aspects of verification for the future long-term mission to provide adequate technical preparation, this technique is that each country reserves for future deep space exploration by insurmountable technical stage. “
