Tips for surviving social distancing from an MIT astronaut
Keeping our distance from each other for an extended period of time is the most effective way to reduce COVID-19’s spread. But the prospect of prolonged social isolation is uncharted territory for many of us. To get some insight on how we might navigate this period of social separation, MIT News checked in with MIT alumna and former astronaut Cady Coleman, who perhaps had the ultimate isolation experience. (Listen to more audio content: http://soundcloud.com/mitnewsoffice) Watch more videos from MIT: http://www.youtube.com/user/MITNewsOffice?sub_confirmation=1 The Massachusetts Institute of Technology is an independent, coeducational, privately endowed university in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Our mission is to advance knowledge; to educate students in science, engineering, technology, humanities and social sciences; and to tackle the most pressing problems facing the world today. We are a community of hands-on problem-solvers in love with fundamental science and eager to make the world a better place.
The MIT YouTube channel features videos about all types of MIT research, including the robot cheetah, LIGO, gravitational waves, mathematics, and bombardier beetles, as well as videos on origami, time capsules, and other aspects of life and culture on the MIT campus. Our goal is to open the doors of MIT and bring the Institute to the world through video. #socialdistancing, #selfquarantine, #covid19,
#BeAnAstronaut: How Did You Get Interested in STEM?

#AskNASA┃ How Can I Be An Astronaut?
As NASA prepares to launch American astronauts this year on American rockets from American soil to the International Space Station – with an eye toward the Moon and Mars – NASA is accepting applications March 2 to 31 for the next class of Artemis Generation astronauts. The basic requirements to apply include United States citizenship and a master’s degree in a STEM field, including engineering, biological science, physical science, computer science, or mathematics, from an accredited institution. Candidates also must have at least two years of related, progressively responsible professional experience, or at least 1,000 hours of pilot-in-command time in jet aircraft. Astronaut candidates must pass the NASA long-duration spaceflight physical. Americans may apply to #BeAnAstronaut at: https://www.usajobs.gov/GetJob/ViewDetails/561186900 As part of the application process, applicants will, for the first time, be required to take an online assessment that will require up to two hours to complete.NASA expects to select the new class of astronaut candidates in mid-2021 to begin training as the next class of Artemis Generation astronauts.
