A Long Mission to ‘Mars’ for Colombian Man

Diego Urbina is finally on his way back to Earth. It has been a very long trek and he still has the journey home to contend with. He has been on Mars with five other members of the crew of the Mars 500 project and all should be returning on November 5th. The project began June 3rd, 2010 and is a very realistic simulation run by the European Space Agency and the Russian Space Agency.

When Urbina emerges from the isolation chamber, he hopes to keep working in space engineering and operations and help put humans on Mars ("This time for real!").
