Today I learned about “Mars 500”, a simulated space mission in which six individuals were isolated in a mock-spacecraft in Russia for a year and a half to test how people might cope psychologically and physically during an actual trip to Mars. This is not a joke. 520 days, no windows, only delayed communication with the world, voluntarily. More info here and here.
Today I meditated for 15 minutes.
Today I acted kindly by donating several cans of food to the local food bank.
