Human Factors in Long-Duration Spaceflight is a compilation of the findings of a study of the behavioral, psychological, physiological, and medical factors of manned space missions of up to two years' duration. The intent of the recommendations in the report is to indicate the blocks of research, roughly in order of priority, that will be most fruitful in the years ahead in coming to grips with the problems of long-duration missions. The report calls for research into a wide range of problems, from bioinstrumentation and automated physical examinations to small-group dynamics, development of objective performance tests, criteria for habitability, relation between brain waves and cognitive efficiency, and so forth—problems that are experienced by both the crew of a long-duration spaceflight and contemporary society on earth.
