WORKING REMOTELY (IN SPACE): Celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the ISS & Voting In Space
2020 caught everyone off guard, with an unprecedented scale of stress and social isolation. Astronauts are trained experts in living, working and exercising remotely and with limited space, much like today for so many people during the current pandemic. Join ISS Commander Dr. Leroy Chiao, with special guest Paul Francis – inventor of the first resistance exercise device used on the International Space Station, for this special virtual event celebrating 20 years of ISS operations. During his cumulative 229 days in Space, Dr. Chiao did everything remotely, including being the first American Astronaut to vote in a Presidential election. As you and your organization continue to adapt to the evolving situation, Chiao offers lessons from spaceflight, including practical tools, coping mechanisms and inspiration for thriving in our new world!
