More pictures and video from "Mission To Mars": Austrian Ice Cave Serves as Stage for Red Planet Voyage

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.
