The European Space Agency is looking for six people to spend a year and a half inside a small, simulated “spacecraft.” The volunteers will have to perform tasks and react to “emergencies” just as though they were real astronauts on a trip to mars. They will not be allowed out, and will only communicate with “Earth” via a time-delayed radio. This will help the agency figure out how people will react in a confined space for a long period of time. They have not, apparently, been watching Big Brother.
Sorry, only citizens of the European Union and Canada will be considered.
