Attitude is everything: I’m on an adventure in a confined space with a small crew for a long duration mission”.

Astronaut wannabe Rachel Zimmerman-Brachman says isolation is a lot like astronaut training.

So she came up with this positive message and launched it via Facebook on Thursday:

Attitude is everything: I’m on an adventure in a confined space with a small crew for a long duration mission,

with occasional space walks and resupply missions. Sounds like astronaut training to me.”

JPL is working up a list of space-related educational activities that youngsters can do while home.

“Life is a combination of what happens to you and what you do about it.

“I hope other people will be inspired to have a positive attitude during this challenging time,

and find a way to find silver linings in the current situation,” she added.

“We’re all in this together.”
