So – supposedly, The Russian Sleep Experiment is a… well, let’s set the scene. It’s the 1940’s, a group of Russian researchers sealed five prison inmates into an airtight chamber. The participants, or in this case test subjects – were political prisoners that were deemed enemies of the state during World War II. Over the course of 15 days, the experiment would deliver the lofty task of keeping these prisoners awake for as long as they could. This was well before the days of CCTV – so the experiment was conducted purely with microphones and five inch thick porthole windows to monitor the effects. Their test room was stocked with books, cots to sleep on, a toilet and running water – and enough food to last all five subjects for over a month.
