Professor Kim Binsted has received funding of $1M over three years from NASA’s Human Research Program (HRP) and the National Space Biomedical Research Institute (NSBRI)  for her project “Using Analog Missions to Develop Effective Team Composition Strategies for Long Duration Space Exploration”. Binsted’s proposal was one of 24 selected to help investigate questions about astronaut health and performance on future deep space exploration missions.
