A. Risk statement As stated in the Human Research Program Roadmap: Given that the conditions of spaceflight missions will likely impact the functioning and behavioral health of the team, including the spaceflight crew and ground support, performance and behavioral health decrements may occur that will jeopardize mission success and crew health and safety.(More)
In the late 1980s the Australian Antarctic Division collaborated with NASA to use the Australian National Antarctic Research Expeditions' (ANARE) stations to pursue research of benefit to both programs. This article outlines the data collection efforts, the development of analyses, and selected results, and describes some of the benefits for the aerospace,(More)
