Trouble sleeping? How about on Mars?
While International Space Station astronauts have 8-hour night cycles, they often obtain less sleep than on Earth and spend about 20% of their time in a jet-lagged state. Humans living on Mars will likely experience additional sleep disruption to their natural circadian rhythm, because of the longer Martian day of 24 hours and 39 minutes. To survive, humans will need adequate countermeasures.
Join Friends Of The Observatory and Dr. Erin Flyyn-Evans, Lead at the NASA Ames Research Center Fatigue Countermeasures Laboratory, to learn about the current research and training #NASA is conducting on sleeping in space and on other worlds.
