Inside the mind of an astronaut at Lone Star College-Montgomery
Tuesday, February 7, 2017, 1:00 PM - 2:00:00 PM
THE WOODLANDS, Texas -- Imagine you are on a dangerous mission to Mars in a cramped, cold spacecraft. If you leave the facilities without a bulky space suit you will not survive and your only in-person interactions are with your fellow astronauts who you will live with in these conditions for years. Could you handle the pressure? Industrial/organizational psychologist, Dr. Kelley J. Slack can tell you if you have what it takes to mentally make it on a trip to Mars. Dr. Slack is part of NASA’s Behavioral Health and Performance group and she is speaking at Lone Star College-Montgomery Tuesday, Feb. 7 at 1 p.m. in building G, Room 102. Her talk is free and open to the public.http://www.woodlandsonline.com/npps/story.cfm?nppage=59163
