Study of the psychological and physiological consequences of total insulation – like interplanetary missions – a lot of research is devoted to. Russian Scientists Presented The Results of One Of The Largest Experiments On This.

Within The Framework of the Project "Scientific International Studies of the Unique Ground Station" (Sirius), Two Experiments Were Conducted in 2017 and 2019. The First Lasted 17 Days, The Second – 120. Representatives of Different Countries and Cultures, Both Sexterday in Frontiers in Physiology Magazine.
The Project IS Devuted To the Study of the Influence of Isolation On Psychological and Physiological Processes of Man. The Goal Is to Prepare for Missions to Other Planets, First of All On Mars. "The Crews of Such Missions Tend to Reduce Communication With The Center of Management, Are Less Sharing Their Needs and Problems, – Said One Of The Authors of the Study Dmitry Swede. – The Gain of Contacts Was Observed During Important Events, For Example When Modeling Landing.
Changes in Behavior Were Recorded by Recording Conversations, AS Well As The Mimic and Speech Acoustic Characteristics (Intensity, Frequency and Variability). For the first 10 Days of the MADE OF 2019, Scientists Made 320 Conversation Audio Records for About 11 Hours. But In The Last 10 Days The Number of Conversations Decreased to 34, And Their Duration – Up to 77 Minutes. On The 11th Day of The Experiment, The Researchers Simulated An Artificial Delay In The Connection With The Earth, Similar to the One That Settlers on the Moon or Mars Will Be Experienceed.
Interestingly, Under Such Conditions, Scientists Notic Differences in Communication Between Men and Women Participating in The Experiment. In The First to More Extended An Emotion Of Anger, And The Second – Joy and Sorrow. But by The End Of The Experiment, These Differences Were Smoothed.
Scientists in principle observed increasing autonomy from the center of flight management on Earth in all crew members and at the same time their strong cohesion among themselves by the time the experiment is completed: people got close to the floor, regardless of gender, nationality and cultural differences. According to Researchers, IT Looks Promising For Future Interplanetary Missions. The Last Part of the Experiment Began Last Week, November 4, and Conclusions About It Later Compleden This Picture.
