Starting in 2010, an international crew of six will simulate a 520-day round-trip to Mars, including a 30-day stay on the martian surface. In reality, they will live and work in a sealed facility in Moscow, Russia, to investigate the psychological and medical aspects of a long-duration space mission. ESA is looking for European volunteers to take part. The crew will follow a programme designed to simulate a 250-day journey to Mars, a 30-day surface exploration phase and 240 days travelling back
Hm. Almost two years locked in a can full of recycled human farts and bad-tempered, unimaginative scientist-types...

I wish i was in Europe, I wish I had more than a Jack of All Trades experience in anything they listed.
Because I would volunteer in an instant. This is my dream, this is something that I would give up everything I know and love to do.
I would do it for free, no compensation necessary. Perhaps that sets me apart...

Would the simulation be solo in the can or a small group of people?
