Want to "go" to Mars?

The European Space Agency is looking for people to go on a simulated 520 day trip to Mars.

I'm too tall to participate as volunteers have to be less than 6 feet tall. They must also be in good health and speak English or Russian. The deadline for applying is the 5th of November 2009. More info at the ESA site
