How Long Space Voyages Could Mess With Our Minds – BBC

Read article - Quotes Jay Buckey, professor of medicine and adjunct professor of engineering, in an article about the impact of long space voyages on an astronaut's mental health. Buckey, a former astronaut who flew on NASA's Space Shuttle flight STS-90 in 1998, is running an experiment using virtual reality at the U.S. South Pole and Australian Antarctic stations this winter to see if it can help with the psychological demands of being isolated. "You do feel when you're in the VR headset like you've been removed from your day-to-day environment," says Buckey.
