Astronauts Have Games To Keep The Happy In Isolation

In preparation for an upcoming space mission to Mars, the astronauts of the Mars 500 project have been put into isolation for 520 days to emulate the feelings of isolation they may encounter on the mission. Their means of coping? Playing games it seems.

The project is now in its third stage which is regarded as the most intense yet but reports from the psychologist group that are monitoring the crew show that they are getting by comfortable so far.

You can see photos of what the crew have been playing with here and one can only hope the organisers of the experiment have given them more than Just Dance to keep them entertained on the Wii.
