ever wonder what psychological effects a 17 month trip to mars would have on a person? the european space agency wants to know and is currently calling for european volunteers to sit in mock-space modules in moscow for 520 days! the volunteers will endure simulations of daily tasks, eat spaceship food, wait 40 minutes while radio signals travel along the pretend trajectory between mars and earth, and much much more!
if youre interested, go here to download the volunteer form. if you get chosen.... i want to hear ALL about it ;)
