Astronaut Christina Koch On Her Record-breaking Space Isolation
Christina Koch has holds the record for longest continuous spaceflight for a woman. She’s also performed the world first all-woman spacewalk. She knows a thing or two about isolation, courage, the unexpected, and preparation. He’s what she has to say about dealing with isolation, from The Verge:
So for me, the real challenge and what I focused on was not getting too caught up in the sense of needing to know when I would go home. I became comfortable with the concept of launching and not necessarily knowing for sure when I would come back. So I developed a strategy for the longest-possible duration so that I could kind of sustain that tempo no matter what, if it was required.
