Long-distance flights, including the Mars mission, require strict conditions in the selection of participants,  Scott Kelly, a US astronaut who worked nearly a year at the ISS revealed.

“The requirements for participating in the Mars mission are likely to change because the flight is very long compared to the flight to the International Space Station or to the moon that has quick return to Earth,” Kelly said in a statement to the Russian international news agency RIA Novosti on Sunday.

“With the start of flights to the International Space Station and the Shuttle mission, each flight has become a long one, so health requirements have become stricter,” NASA said.
