Abstract

It is only when you notice the bronze bust of Russian space pioneer Konstantin Tsiolkovsky staring at you from the corner of the reception hall at the Institute of Bio-Medical Problems (IBMP) that you realise the staff there are aiming high. Although this large anonymous building situated in the suburbs of Moscow may literally be a world away from Mars, when cosmonauts finally reach its surface they will have done so because of decades of research carried out there.
