Space Analogs and Human Performance

Space Analog research has increased over the last few years with new analogs appearing every year. Research in this field is particularly important for future real mission planning, selection, and training of astronauts.

The purpose of this Topical Team is to perform a systematic review and make a classification of current and emerging analogs, their defining characteristics, commonalities, and what aspects of human performance can be studied in each one of them. For example:

  • Cognitive, emotional, and psychosocial
  • Exercise and physical activity
  • Operational, including flight planning and maintaining operational capabilities under confined/ isolated conditions, robotic interaction, and virtual systems
