Mark Hannaford and Mike Barratt: Lessons from Space
What can NASA teach us about isolation?
Luckily, we’ve got NASA Astronaut and Physician Mike Barratt to answer that very question – plus tonnes more.
Mike discusses the intense training and preparation that NASA equips its astronauts with to tackle the effects of isolation, both as an individual and working within small teams.
Mike explores how perspective is key – by keeping the bigger mission in mind, we remember we are a part of something much larger than ourselves that requires us to play our part, however small, to ensure overall success.
Mike also shares some top tips from his own experiences; from managing family life to the importance of routine and good nutrition – and especially hot sauce! There’s also a special message in there for the medics on the frontline.
