Ex-Astronaut Launches Training Kit for Coping With Self-Isolation – The Guardian

Read article - Quotes Jay Buckey, professor of medicine and adjunct professor of engineering, in a feature story about how he launched an online self-help toolkit aimed at replicating the kind of training designed to help astronauts cope with confinement in small spaces for extended periods. The online training, called the Dartmouth Path Program, was developed to determine how the space program can manage pressures brought on by long-duration spaceflight. "It's challenging to be isolated with a small group of people and to not be able to get away," said Buckey. "Outer space and your own living room might be drastically different physically, but emotionally the stressors can be the same."
