Dr. Sherry Bell

Dr. Bell received her Doctor of Philosophy degree in Industrial/Organizational Psychology from Capella University. She specializes in Leadership Development, Executive Coaching, Individual and Team Performance Enhancement, Personality Assessment, and Consulting. She is certified in the use of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and currently provides Executive Coaching services. Sherry is a member of many space organizations and is a member of the Board of Directors of the National Space Society. Dr. Bell became interested in science fiction at an early age. Works by Isaac Asimov were among her favorites. She was particularly intrigued by Asimov’s character, the robot psychologist, Dr. Susan Calvin. With this as a guide, later in life Sherry earned her doctoral degree in psychology—however unlike what she envisioned as a child, she works with humans rather than robots. At this time Dr. Bell’s primary interest is in the evolutionary effects that are expected to result from humans living and traveling beyond Earth. Her interest spreads across four different environments, those being: Space stations orbiting the planet Earth, Extraterrestrial space colonies, Space faring vehicles, and Settlement on an Exoplanet. Her view of the future of humans is optimistic. Her idea is that humans have evolved and will continue to do so, and humans in space are likely to evolve in ways that differ from those who are Earth-based. Her work to understand the psychological and physiological alterations to humans in space is ongoing. She will continue to explore and write about the changes that are likely to occur. She is open to the ideas of others and very much welcomes input. Dr. Bell is the editor of "Living In Space," a tome that’s intention was to explore a wide spectrum of issues that are important to humankind, and has written numerous space-related articles.

Broadcast 501 (Special Edition)

Dr. Sherry Bell was the guest for this Space Show program. Dr. Bell discussed her area of primary interest, the evolutionary effects that are expected to result from humans living and traveling beyond Earth. In this discussion, she brought up some interesting questions about children being born in space or on a space settlement, the emotional and physical consequences of their being born and brought up off Earth and more. We discussed some of the effects on humans, what changes humans may need to undergo to adapt to long term space settlement, and the research being done on these issues.
