Mars Mission Returns to Earth

A simulated Mars mission that is.  The crew of the Mars500 mission successfully spent 520 days locked in a spaceship at a Moscow parking lot.  They were looking to simulate a trip to Mars, and to see if the crew would be able handle the mental stress.  This video shows the 520 days in 15 minutes.   Six guys, who shower once per week, eat canned food, mess around on their computers all day, and never leave the house.  Looks like we can get to Mars by locking a bunch of guys in a log cabin with World of Warcraft.
