    http://google.com/search ?q =circadian+cycle+day+26+hour

    I didn't bother to weed through those for any "reputable" source,
    but "I've heard" that humans normally adjust to a longer day when
    allowed to do so... especially when deprived of information about
    actual time-of-day (including sun's position, of course).

    I know that one summer I wasn't working I stayed up until I felt
    like going to sleep. I'm guessing the sun thing kept me from going
    fully over to the 25/26-hour day, but my schedule did gradually
    shift as I stayed up a bit later each day. By the end of the summer
    I had totally lapped my family and was once again back on a normal
    schedule.

    • I heard 24 1/2 to 25 hours was a pretty common adjustment for humans somehow separated from the sun (say, lost in a cave). That's why I want to move to Mars [complete-isp.com] . :)
