it just sounds strange. surely you would've felt some kind of jet lag when you arrive in ipswich and travellijng around the north sea.

i just saw the 1st show. i couldnt believe they all fell for it and said yes and everything. but i suppose they did try and make it as realstic as possible. they probably couldve fooled me as well!

Well the second show was better and it seems very realistic so far for what they have seen. Mind you with the money spent it should be. Apparently they even changed the manhole covers.

Mind I would not mind if they do not pull it off I liked Jamie's School Dinners. :P

Well they revealed to those that did not get on the space trip the con this evening .... it was a generally favourable reaction. I liked the girl who said she was well happy cos the others did not get to go to space in reality.

It has all been happening during the night and at one stage the live feed was pulled :!: :!:

It seems that at last they have sussed out they are in a simulator.

Rumours have it the producers have entered the craft and begged them to carry on till the end :P

However the truth will sure to be found out after the series finishes tonight.

This made me laugh.

Jet lag is caused by the difference in time zone.

If your destination is in the same time zone then jet lag won't be an issue.

If you fly from Heathrow to the west coast of the US, and you board at 11am GMT, you'll arrive at about 8pm GMT but local time will be midday (GMT-8). Or one hour after you left. So at 4pm local time your body clock thinks it's midnight and you'll probably feel tired.

o crap! i just realised i phrased that wording wrong! o god that felt like a blonde moment (even though i'm chinese)

What i meant was they would've been expecting jet lag if they arrived in russia. So i was suprised they didn't knotice anyhting. It must've been really late when i wrote that :)
