Mars500

As part of planning for a future mission to Mars, six volunteers are taking part in the Mars500 Project. For 18 months, they’ll live inside a space capsule with no windows and only e-mail contact with the world outside their doors to try to simulate long-term space conditions (except without the weightlessness and danger of asphyxiation).

Could you spend a year and a half in the same rooms with the same five people? Let’s hope they all get on well!
