Learn about the rigorous training astronauts need to work successfully in the dangerous space environment . Daily tasks that are more difficult in space, such as eating, sleeping and personal hygeine are described, as well as the hazards of space travel affecting successful manned deep space missions. These problems will need to be dealt with to ensure a successful deep space mission to Mars or a return to the Moon. Included will be a competition quiz with a prize based on the information presented and students will have access to NASA's disk of lunar samples collected by Apollo astronauts on Missions 15, 16, and 17.
