Physiological and Cognitive Exploration Simulation: Assessments of Physiology and Cognition in Hybrid Environment: A Novel Approach to Optimize the Future of Spacewalk Simulations

Abstract: As NASA plans to return to the Moon in the 2020’s, with missions to Mars in the 2030’s, extravehicular activities (EVAs)must be optimized due to the inherent 4-22 minute communication latency from Earth to Mars. Certain control functions previously executed by Mission Control must now be performed by astronauts, leading to a new operational paradigm or the future of mission operations. Consequently, future mission explorations will be more physically and cognitively demanding on both EV and I…
