Feedback: What did you think of this show?:
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. Dr. Bell talked about the use and application of personality assessment tools for predicting who might be best qualified for space settlement or what such tests might reveal for potential astronauts. One of the tools mentioned was the the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. As a result of listener questions, our guest addressed sex in space, cooperation among various businesses, national, and international space programs and much more. Dr. Bell spoke at the recent ISDC Conference and her power point presentation, "Evolutionary Psychology and Its Implications for Humans In Space" will be sent to you upon your email request.
