Volunteers and professionals at the Austrian Space Forum are testing a prototype Mars space suit in a series of ice caves that provide conditions similar to those on the Red Planet.
Humanity is still far away from a manned mission to the planet, but the enthusiasts here believe it will actually happen one day.
See a video of the mission at http://www.spiegel.de/video/video-1193800.html
