Dr. Erin Flynn-Evans interviewed by CNN
(Jun 1, 2017)
In May 2017, Dr. Erin Flynn-Evans was interviewed for a Cable News Network (CNN) segment on the challenge faced by astronauts of obtaining sufficient sleep in space. During this segment, Dr. Flynn-Evans explained that astronauts "essentially experience a perpetual jet lag" while in space. She also explained that shift-workers on earth experience the same sleep issues. The corresponding article at www.cnn.com includes additional quotes from Dr. Flynn-Evans and a brief description of her research laboratory. Dr. Flynn-Evans is the Principal Investigator of the Fatigue Countermeasures Laboratory in the Human Systems Integration Division. The article (with video) is at http://www.cnn.com/2017/06/01/health/nasa-science-sleep-space/index.html.
