Coronavirus advice: Astronauts' tips to surviving self-isolation – 'Just like the ISS'

How to survive the coronavirus isolation the astronaut way

According to NASA astronaut Peggy Whitson, who lived on the International Space Station (ISS) across three missions, the key to survival is communication.

While on the ISS, the astronaut lived 250 miles (402km) above the planet, with limited contact with the outside world.

She told CBS This Morning: “It’s actually very doable but it’s important to be able to interact well with the people that you’re staying with.

“And interesting, a lot of people are trying to work from home, and trying to be parents from home, and have a family from home.

“So it becomes very challenging but that’s just like what we did on board the International Space Station.
