    Space pioneers wanted for 520-day Mars experiment

    LE BOURGET, France (AFP) - The European Space Agency (ESA) on Tuesday called for applications for one of the most demanding human experiments in space history: a simulated trip to Mars in which six "astronauts" will spend 17 months in an isolation tank on Earth.

    Their spaceship will comprise a series of interlocked modules in an research institute in Moscow, and once the doors are closed tight, the volunteers will be cut off from all contact with the outside world except by a delayed radio link.

    They will face simulated emergencies, daily work routines and experiments, as well as boredom and, no doubt, personal friction from confinement in just 550 cubic metres (19,250 cubic feet), the equivalent of nine truck containers."

    Not quite out of this world........

    I've wanted to visit Moscow, but I'll take a pass on that plan.

    I dunno...are you truly a pioneer if what you're experiencing is a simulation of a honest-to-goodness event? This certainly isn't an option if you're claustrophobic although I suppose one could say the same for Viking voyages.

    Maybe i'll just take up Formula 1 racing...:tongue:

    Hey, I haven't had a speeding ticket in over a year.

    Of course, driving a Ferrari would probably change that...

    Actually, it's worse than it looks. 17 months would be the time to Mars for a vehicle following a minimum transfer energy ellipse. To simulate the return from a simulated Mars would take another 17 months.
