Many people say that they are working too many hours. They don't have enough time to relax or to stay with their family.
Work hours are different from one country to another. In France, people spend about 1,646 hours a year at work. In Japan, however, people work about 2,159 hours a year. That means a Japanese worker works 513 more hours a year than a French worker.
Why do people work so many hours? Some people work
make more money. However, many companies don't pay overtime. Their workers don't get more pay for more work. Some people think it's their duty to work more hours. Some are afraid of losing their jobs if they don't work more hours.
Many people say that their vacations are too short. In France, people get five weeks of paid vacation a year. In Germany, they get four to six weeks, and in the United States, two weeks. One study shows fewer than half of workers used all their vacation days. In Great Britain, there is a saying, "All work and no play makes Jack a dull (迟钝的) boy." If that is true, there must be a lot of dull people in the world.

Chinese space lover Wang Yuan has been chosen as one of the volunteers for the Mars-500 test project. Another five volunteers are all space . They are three Russians, an Italy-Colombian and a Frenchman. During the whole process (过程), they are locked up for one and a half years under the condition which is similar to the red planet. So the experiment is called Mare-500.
Although the volunteers won't leave the building, they will feel as if(好像) they are on a real trip to Mars. The most difficult thing is that they will be separated fromthe people outside. That will be hard. When reporters asked what they would miss most during the 500-day special life, Charles from France said, "For me, it will be mainly my family, the sun and fresh air."
The main task is to study "Man and Environment". It will care about the astronauts' physical effects and the experience of staying there. So they will have to make decisions by themselves and then report to the earth, and the earth will tell them whether they do the right thing or not.
Each astronaut is preparing for the great challenge. And people are looking forward to the result of the experiment.
