Former NASA Astronaut Mike Massimino shares stories from his nearly 30 days in space to help those currently sheltering-in-place due to the new coronavirus. Mike goes over a few of the things that helped him the most while he was isolated from friends and family, including regular exercise, talking with others, embracing the current situation and more.

Mike, I loved this. I will play it for my boys. Great tips! Weare trying to 'embrace' it as well. One thing that I'm doing everyother weekend for my three boys is having a 'Shelter In Place-Party.' So far we have had an Italanian Festival with wine tasting (adults only), Olive tasting (kids), Lasagna dinner and watching My Cousin Vinny. We aslo had a Luau with a talent show and Spam cooking contest, then Easter-In-Place and next weekend we'll have The Celebration of Science. I'll incorporate this video into that night for sure. Thank you and stay well (everyone!)

Let’s think: Canada has 40 million people but only 22k cases, the US 330 but 503k cases. So... Canada 550 cases per million, the US 1,524 per million. Canada has managed to do 3. times better than the US. The people are equally intelligent and resourceful, it is BAD LEADERSHIP.

First I’d like to Thank Senator Barbara A. Mikulski (D-Md.) for getting you the funds to fix that most amazing machine. And also a heartfelt Thank You for doing it! The improvements you (and thousands of others) made to extend the operability of Hubble made science greater. But like you looking at the Earth we non-scientists love the aesthetics Hubble brings us. It is important to appreciate what’s on and around the pale blue dot.

Thanks for putting this together. I ordered a kayak and PS4 that I've been putting off and I'm excited to enjoy the the weather (carefully and distanced of course) and play a new game that I've had my eye on for awhile... Might pick up a keyboard and try my hand at that if this lasts a bit longer... If it doesn't take much longer for us to get back out there, then I will have myself a hobby in place for the near future 😀

@Antonio Cartín Caballero Yes, exactly what the PP said. You'll find a bunch of dislikes on any video featuring NASA or its astronauts. It's a great tool to know what percentage of the population watching the video are idiotic conspiracy theorists.

I have heard that microgravity/zero-G environments can have a detrimental effect on circulation and exercise can help to mitigate that effect. Is that true?
Justagirl92 7 måneder siden
I was searching NOsections for footage of Mike Massimino's EVA that he talked about in this video, and look what popped up -- a video of Mike talking about exercise in space for the WIRED channel!!! I haven't watched it yet, but I'm sure you'll enjoy it. nosections.info/green/y21gsYF5eKehrcg/video.html
Justagirl92 7 måneder siden
Absolutely, it's true. Good question, Mike. Like PP mentioned, there is exercise equipment on board the International Space Station. There are 3 pieces of equipment that I know of: a treadmill w/bungee cords, a bike w/no seat 😁, and a weight machine called the aRED (advanced resistive exercise device) -- which all help mitigate atrophy of muscles and bones. Take a look at any of NASA's tours of the ISS on their various NOsections channels, Mike. You won't be disappointed!
soldierside365 7 måneder siden
Yes. Gravity is and the contraction of muscles through walking etc. is crucial for blood flow, and even in supporting the immune system. In zero G, muscles atrophy because of aforementioned lack of gravity. More recently they have treadmills and stuff to maintain muscle and fitness. I think, anyway...

Thank you for sharing your experiences and ideas! I know a lot of people have different faiths...or none at all, but I realize the importance (especially in these days) of having time to to study Gods Word. Something that can get pushed to the background in a rushed everyday life. I also have time to research a little Biblical archeology which has been fascinating while comparing that to the Bible along with (perhaps) unfolding prophecy happening right now.

Solitary/the hole would be extremely worse than space. At least the guys who stay in space have audio video and can chat and interact with people and have things to do. Solitary in Prison. you get meals thru a slot and only human interaction is guards or trustees. a year in space over 3 month in solitary anyday
