Duct tape and Foils in Space

The Foil Competition Festival celebrates the continuation of MarsWithoutBorders, Crew 158 social interaction and strengthening of crew cohesion and bonding during the two week mission and will allow Crew 159 team to learn and discover social interaction, fun, imagination and creativity. Each crew member will design a foil hat and role play the meaning of it. There will be awards for best design and acting. Emmy and I will be judging the elaborate designs of the crew members and allows special “acting talents’” to be shared with each other.

Human factors and social psychological wellness and well being are very important elements to investigate for crews living in isolation and confinement for future astronauts on long duration space missions and for human settlement of off-world planets.
