Russian astronaut Alexei Sitev should be at least planning his honeymoon after tying the knot with the love of his life four weeks ago.
But instead Sitev and his bride Ekaterina Golubeva will be spending their first 18 months of married life apart.
The 38-year-old will be locked in a steel capsule, measuring just 1,000 square feet,  with five other men, who were chosen from thousands of applicants, to participate in a simulated mission to Mars.

A crew of six, including two Europeans, will begin next month a simulated mission to Mars in a mockup that includes an interplanetary spaceship, a Mars lander and a martian landscape. The Mars 500 experiment, as long as a real journey to Mars, will be second to none as the ultimate test of human endurance.
The ESA-selected Europeans have now been chosen among 4 candidates who have been training at the Russian Institute of Biomedical Problems (IBMP) in Moscow for several weeks.

To advance the cause of manned Mars missions, he left wife and home in Holiday, Florida, to spend last month with five other volunteers in a can-shaped shelter on top of the world just 1,448km from the Earth's North Pole.

Their assignment: Pretend they're on Mars
