I am not sure about when NASA Day of Remembrance was established, but it actually corresponds neatly with my another doubt.
In 2004 on January 14, President George W. Bush announced that the U.S. would set its sights on a manned mission to Mars. Some of the most difficult challenges future space explorers may face will be psychological - because delving farther into space than anyone ever has before means great danger and also grinding monotony.
I like brewing. And I am curious about psychologists' craft systems to lessen the mental strains astronauts might face hundreds miles away from earth.
