ESA is current researching ways to regrow bone lost in osteopenia. Cosmonauts typically spend up to 3 years in space across 5 flight on average, but no astronauts has ever spent more than a year in space.

idk what the confusion is all about..

we had 2 rovers in mars years ago that is now defunct..
this 3rd one is bigger and more sophisticated and much heavier thus exposed to higher risk considering it weighs a ton..
one wrong move and billions of dollars goes down the drain.. thats why planetary descent is very tricky and such a big deal..

I don't get why we give a fuck about the other planets in our galaxy when we don't even know everything about our own -_- Billions of dollars are already wasted imo.

research, technology and discovery are done simultaneously and priority isnt given any thought because they are a completely a different field of sciences..
$$ are not wasted and in fact this mission is more important than ever because it will gather data for a plan for a manned mission to mars sometime in the future..

Umm no, Vitamin D3 is made as the result of chemical reaction that occurs when UVB strikes 7-dehydrocholesterol in the skin. Photosynthesis is the process plants and some organisms use to turn light into chemical energy. Similar in that they use light but quite different in the actual process (closer to the way we process glucose for energy, ATP[Adenosine triphosphate]).

I heard they've already been to Mars and it took two years to get there... Btw all of that looks fake,

first, get a lot of seeds
second, bring seeds and plants to the rocket
third, send the seeds and plants to mars
fourth, put a seed on the mars ground and put some plants on the other side of the soil of mars and wait until it rains

Eventually there will be a new plants on Mars and some day there will be a little oxygen.

i hate when people say space exploration is a waste of money. welfare and social programs are a waste of money, we should spend all of our money on research and exploration.
