Teams preparing for space missions

Congratulations on the great work you do on Teamistry. I just completed your Teamistry survey even though I was too late to be among the first 100 to get the freebies. One of the questions on the survey asked what types of shows we might want to see. Here is what I wrote: Keep looking for team stories in unlikely places. For instance, my collaborators and I are working with NASA to prepare teams and teams of teams that will go back to the Moon and on to Mars. We are learning a lot about how people react to being put into space mission analogs that simulate the isolated and confined environments of long duration space travel. We just did an interview about our work with NASA's Houston We Have a Podcast and would love to work with you if you are interested. Good luck, Noshir Contractor.

I’ve listened to all your episodes and can’t wait for the new ones!
It’s such as great podcast - highly recommended to anyone interested in the power of collaboration. I study teams as a part of my doctoral research and I wish I could tell a team story & lessons learnt like you do <3

Thanks to the whole research and production team in charge of making and editing all those episodes!
