From NASA ebooks section Psychology of Space Exploration Edited by Douglas A. Vakoch Explore some of the contributions of psychology to the great space race, orbiter and International Space Station missions, and future space journeys. Credits: NASA This e-book explores some of the contributions of psychology to yesterday's great space race, today's orbiter and International Space Station missions, and tomorrow's journeys beyond Earth's orbit. Early missions into space were typically brief, and crews were small, often drawn from a single nation. As an intensely competitive space race has given way to international cooperation over the decades, the challenges of communicating across cultural boundaries and dealing with interpersonal conflicts have become increasingly important, requiring different coping skills and sensibilities from "the right stuff" of early astronauts.

Captain's Log, Tuesday July 7, 2020. 2k20 S5 D2 Location: Home work space (or where ever you do this) Your prose go here. We can test out using the Learning Game Tech called voice pal to transcribe your mp4---> mp3 to text. This will allow you to make a quick video then convert mp4 to a sound file (mp3), then convert to text. You could consider making a video, where you can share you screen while you record and upload it to the server, but this is way more time consuming that the Voice Pal transcription method. Of course, you can also just type it up, reflect, edit then make public, and include doodles, graphics etc. /s/ Doc Palmere 2k20 S5 D2 @ 7:56am
Stardates and Date Samps A stardate is a fictional system of time measurement developed for the television and film series Star Trek. In the series, use of this date system is commonly heard at the beginning of a voice-over log entry, such as "Captain's log, stardate 41153.7. Stardate's were mostly used in video or audio logs made. A date stamp is the system Space Voyage Instructors use to document review or passage or work completed. The time stamp is typically written out then initialed by the instructor. This allows the Flight Director and other staff to see when work was reviewed, approved or passed. For example. July 7th, 2020 is the second day of the fifth week of our summer space program. The Space Voyage date stamp would be 2k20 S5 D2 @ 1:05pm docp. The 2k20 is a historic carry over from the early days of Space Voyage, where 2001 could be written 2k1, thereby saving space if the date stamp was used in naming a file. (Older DOS files were limited to 8 characters. The date stamp connotation is still used today by all Space Voyage staff. Date stamps are mostly used in written work and in naming computer files to be saved.
The captain's log was a form of log entry record-keeping that was used since the first captains sailed Earth's seas in ancient history. The log was used to inform the captain's superiors of what was happening on a mission and to record historical facts for future generations. (wiki) The term Captain's Log was made popular in the various StarTrek TV and movie productions. Dr. Wu suggests: "The Captain’s log was a form of log entry record-keeping that was used since the first captains sailed Earth’s seas in ancient history. The log was used to inform the captain’s superiors of what was happening on a mission and to record historical facts for future generations. Acting captains could choose to make updates to the Captain’s log directly, as was Spock’s habit, instead of using an acting captain’s log." (Source: July 7, 2020 Link to source ) Enjoy.
