In my effort to share the story of human spaceflight (Including the various federal and commercial programs as well as my own endeavors), I would like to find ways to share my upcoming participation in NASA’s HERA analog study.
If you would like to follow the details of the simulated mission, the crew and I will be posting on Twitter to this account: @HERA_Crew_X
From April 19th through May 2nd, the other crew members and I will be training on the Johnson Space Center campus in Houston, Texas. Each of us will be assigned a role on the crew. Two of the selected participants will train as Mission Specialists, another will play the role of Flight Engineer, and one will be responsible as Mission Commander. During training, we will learn the tasks associated with our respective roles.
I will continue to post to this blog until the start of the mission study, and follow up afterward with more after the flight profile is completed.
If you have a webpage, write a blog, host a space/science/STEM social media account (or know someone who does) and would like to know more about the HERA X mission, feel free to contact me and I will do my best to answer your questions. I would love to share this experience with a wider audience.
