The aims of the proposed project are to:
Aim #1: Customize the Virtual Space Station program for use by astronauts by evaluating the program in an isolated environment (i.e., Antarctica) and collecting detailed information on program use, including user choices, ease of navigation, usability and acceptability.
Aim #2: Modify the existing VSS program to add enhanced conflict resolution content and an integrated behavioral health assessment.
Aim #3: Enhance the VSS program to include a mood enhancement system that allows users to experience immersive relaxing situations using virtual reality.
