Abstract:

Psychiatric studies were made of crew interactions on a series of eight Two-Man Space Cabin Simulator experiments. Crew interaction was observed periodically over closed-circuit television and surveillance microphones. Other information was obtained from diaries and debriefings. Many situations and factors, which have been forecast in the literature as having potential psychiatric significance, did not appear to be problems on these simulated flights. Some factors, however, such as work-rest schedules, boredom, and interpersonal relations, do appear as areas of potential concern on actual prolonged space flight. Author
