...how going to space can help us on Earth? (with Sian Proctor)
Play • 7 min

A while back we chatted with Sian Proctor (@DrSianProctor), an analog astronaut and geoscience professor at  South Mountain Community College in Phoenix, AZ. We got some insight on what analog astronauts do and what it’s like to live in a mock Mars habitat for months in Hawaii but today we ask

Do you ever wonder how going to space can help us on Earth?

Sian Proctor’s specialty is geologic disasters, she looks into how these disasters impact humans’ ability to survive. Now the real question is how does studying geologic disasters prepare us for space exploration or better yet how does space exploration help us get through the natural disasters here on earth!? Could it be that if “we solve for space we solve for earth”
