Space exploration has been going on for more than 50 years, and there's still so little we know about the vast universe. But it turns out there is so much we can learn about being on Earth... from traveling into outer space.

Amy shared five tips we can take away from astronauts training for space missions and how we can apply them to our lives as we navigate the pandemic.
