Aims:

1. Establish the extent to which prolonged confinement up to 520 days, under simulated space flight conditions (e.g., social isolation, time delays, simulated emergencies, etc.), affects positive and negative mood states and mood expressions across time in mission.

2. Establish the extent to which prolonged confinement up to 520 days, under simulated space flight conditions,affects the stability of psychomotor vigilance performance across time in mission.

3. Establish the extent to which prolonged confinement up to 520 days, under simulated space flight conditions, affects the frequency of perceived conflicts and interpersonal tension across time in mission.

4. Establish the extent to which prolonged confinement up to 520 days, under simulated space flight conditions, affects sleep duration, sleep quality, and both subjective and objective manifestations of fatigue.

5. Establish the extent to which prolonged confinement under simulated space flight conditions affects waking activity levels.
