The European Space Agency (ESA) is looking for volunteers to go to
Mars Russia for an experiment in social behaviour. Basically they want to lock a group of 6 people in a research facility for 500 days (the duration of a real Mars mission), shut them off from the outside world and see what happens to them. Kinda like those Biosphere projects they did in the -80s that spawned some godawful horror movies except these people will be living in an imagined Mars module with a total surface area of 200 square meters somewhere outside Moscow, Russia.
ESA is looking for 2 volunteers and 2 back ups for what they call “isolation and confinement studies”. You have to be between 25 and 50 years old, no more than 185 cm tall, have a healthy body and no mental problems. It’s also a plus if you speak both English and Russian but it is not a must. The candidates have to be from an ESA participating country so Canadians are welcome but no Americans. Sorry, but you have your own space agency.
