Lacking in photographs of the living quarters / experiment as a whole.
Professional wiki guys could you make my comment into one of those nifty "this article needs more piccies" type criticism?
- The main problem with getting pictures for this article is that the official pictures are not released under a suitable license (for example the ESA pictures are all 'for non-commercial use only', which is not compatible with Wikipedia). Therefore I don't see any point in tagging the article, as it seems unlikely to be filled in the short term. I see people have tried to contact ESA in the past, I might have another go.

- Thanks. I've now added it to this article. Peter 21:23, 2 June 2010 (UTC)
General Grammar Correction and Proofreading Needed
The article appears to have been written by an individual speaking English as a second language and contains several sentences which are difficult to understand. For example, "Experiment facility locates at the Institute of Biomedical Problems (IBMP) of the Russian Academy of Sciences in Moscow" should be "The experiment will take place at the Russian Academy of Sciences' Institute of Biomedical Problems (IBMP) in Moscow, Russia." The article contains several other sentences with grammatical errors similar to this.
- Another IP user and myself have started working on this, but there is plenty more to do! Peter 21:23, 2 June 2010 (UTC)
- I note with confusion the mention of "two EU citizens and a Chinese citizen" in the third and final mission. I see one person from France and the other from Colombia? Something's not quite right there. Looking at the original BBC article, it seems Mr. Urbina is Italian-Colombian. My mistake. --ScientificBuccaneer (talk) 04:27, 6 November 2011 (UTC)

- I just brought that up on the spaceflight talkpage for you. I expect the image of the Lunar craft is the problem. Penyulap talk 02:24, 4 January 2012 (UTC)
Edits by Fry09 need *SERIOUS* english grammar correction
The most recent edits by "Fry09" are not written in grammatically correct English. Rather, they appear to be written in the user's native language and then translated with Babel fish. While the information appears to be factual, the inappropriate writing will make it hard to confirm the validity and give the overall appearance of inaccuracy. These sections need to either be deleted or re-written by a knowledgeable English speaker/writer. 18.104.22.168 15:46, 20 February 2012
Edits by Penyulap need slightly less serious grammar correction
I had a bit of a go at it, I think his work is fantastic, and I am glad you brought it up on the talkpage, I would have hated to have seen any of that deleted. This article is going places ! Anyhow I trashed it, my own grammar is appalling, hopefully the next editor will add a bit of polish to it as well. Also I note he has English listed as one of his languages, and he's not all that bad at it, but your right of course. Penyulap talk 07:26, 23 February 2012 (UTC)
I've removed the Russia Today news template from the page, as it had raised concern because it pointed to a single trending news page, rather than a selection of trend pages, and after discussion in the appropriate places, it's easier to remove it than it is to add lots of other trend pages, as I don't know of any (don't have time to look). If there are any comments, concerns, or suggestions please reply on my talkpage, as I don't watch this page. Penyulap ☏ 02:26, 20 April 2012 (UTC)
