How humans have tried to combat sleep for over a century, and how it continues on the longest flight in the world.
Show Notes

Aircraft and the modern aviation system has enabled humans to fly across the entire planet. But can the human body and brain itself actually handle it? Join me on this discussion that explores some concepts on sleep mitigation, and how it has been handled throughout the past century. With a new era in mind, Qantas, the airline that is experimenting with flying from NYC (JFK) to Sydney (Australia); a nearly 20 hour flight, is ready to see how this flight affects people. Hear how the airline is experimenting with lighting, work outs, and well-timed meals to help the human body adjust to such an unnatural environment!
