http://mars500.imbp.ru/en/index_e.html Morning All, Longtime lurker, infrequent poster here, I am curious what qualified submariners think of the above project. Not a journo, just interested. It is a simulated mission to Mars and involves a small crew (6/8) being isolated for 520 days in a mock up space craft. There has already been a smaller study (120 days). I would imagine there would be a number of similarities to a long deployment but think the size of the crew would be a major factor on the physcological aspect of the simulated mission. Would anyone want to volunteer?
