Why On Earth Should We Study the Health Issue of Space?


Patrice O. Yarbough

NASA - The HERA Project

Patrice will start by introducing the Human Exploration Research Analog (HERA) -  a ground-analog for the NASA Human Research Program to study and evaluate impacts due to isolation, remoteness and confined habitation. Investigators will be looking at psychological, human factor and physiological impacts. Each HERA mission will simulate space exploration scenarios. Our current HERA Campaign 4 will include up to four 45-Day missions. Subjects will spend the mission in confined habitation inside the habitat at JSC-NASA.
