MOSCOW (Reuters) - Six men from Russia, Europe and China are preparing to spend 520 days together in a sealed-off warren to take a simulated trip to Mars to test how long isolation would affect humans.
On June 3, three Russians, an Italian-Colombian, a Frenchman and a Chinese man will be locked up in a set of cramped compartments as the record-breaking Mars500 simulated flight to the Red Planet gets underway to last until November 2011.

I give it no more than 6 days before the Russian and Chinese men attempt to kill the Frenchman for refusing to do anything unless they speak French and wanting to only work 5 hours a day.......I can see it now....the Frenchman saying every time they want to get some work done...."Today...no!....tomorrow...mmmm..perhaps!"
