I tuned in for the “When Space is Home” panel discussion with journalist Lynn Sherr and four former astronauts.
On the list of topics: animals in space, new toilets in space, and food in space.
And tips the astronauts might have for us about dealing with isolation.
A highlighted passage from my notes includes this advice: “Spend more time choosing your interactions and make them count more.”
The panelists you’ll hear from in the video below include:
Dr. Anna Fisher – In 1984, she was the first mother in space.
Colonel Jack Fischer – During a 2017 mission, Fischer logged 136 days in space with two spacewalks.
Dr. Richard Linnehan – The first veterinarian in space.
Barbara Morgan – She pioneered the “Teacher in Space” program and flew on Space Shuttle Endeavour in 2007.
