Hibernating lemurs may be the key to cryogenic sleep for human space travel

Gray mouse lemurs are more closely related to humans than mice. They also have the ability to hibernate, and researchers are hoping to learn how to transfer that ability to humans.

Coronavirus quarantine could provide lessons for future space travel on how regular people weather isolation

Understanding isolation's effects on regular people, rather than those certified to have 'the right stuff,' will help prepare us for the future, whether another pandemic or interplanetary space travel.
