Not training missions. Research. Mars Arctic station missions lasted a few weeks at most. Big Brother? Seriously?
This I don't get it after countless of space isolation training centres behind us ,like Mars artic research station,Mars one and big brother some others I don't know the names of anymore .
Right forget the "human factor" completely. Just go for it. Not a good idea when you're going to have a small group of people packed into a small place for a year or more. This experiment will simulate a one year mission. The longest such simulation to date.
I say just pick some volunteers and go ,they know the risks being on another planet.
Not yet it doesn't. Not even close. Haven't figured out how to deal with cosmic radiation yet, among other things.
And I've got the feeling our tech has enough potential to go on such mission with fair percentage of coming back too..
