Group Dynamics In Extreme Earth Environments: Analogs For Space Missions (Past And Present Expeditions Analysis)
Crew performance in space has become an increasing focus of many space faring nations due to the recent shift in focus of colonizing the Moon and then preparing to travel to Mars and beyond. This recent shift in focus to more long-duration missions has moved researchers in the direction of analyzing crew performance aspects associated with crew dynamic development on such long missions. More recently researchers have been analyzing past expeditions carried out on Earth, as these expeditions kept records of crew performance, which have been compared and analyzed to those reported on space missions. In his presentation, Matthew Allner will provide an comprehensive overview of the original research he has carried out the last four years to contribute the collection of psychological studies that will help astronaut crews get back to the Moon and then to Mars.
