Russian Space Agency to Launch All-Female Lunar Experiment

Russia’s space agency, Roscosmos, will begin an eight-day lunar experiment on October 28, in which a crew of six women will simulate a return journey to the moon.

The all-women crew will spend eight days inside a capsule designed to replicate conditions for an actual journey to the moon.
