The Universe 25 experiments errors

In 1947, ethologist John B. Calhoun, conducted an experiment called the Universe 25 experiment. In this experiment he introduced a population of mice into an enclosed area and monitored their progression. From this experiment he concluded that the worlds population would have a limit before a self destruct stage would take place. While this experiment might have been accurate in the sense of same species interaction, mice do not live alone, nor do they live in a bubble. The experiment would have been better if different species of mice where used, and maybe even a rat and mice population introduced. This would better give an accurate representation of a “real world” scenario, where different “religion and ethical borders are created”. The universe 25 experiment would only in our opinion be applicable to space travel, on a limited size ship with same ethical and education upbringing. No more.
