Who knows a ton about how to cope with physical distancing and self-isolation measures? Astronauts, of course, according to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
They’re “experts” at staying inside (since going out un-suited space can be deadly) and at staying far, far away from other people weeks at a time during their space station missions, Trudeau said at his press conference Sunday morning.
Two Canadian astronauts, Jeremy Hansen and David Saint-Jacques, will share their knowledge by answering questions submitted by kids across the country at 10:30 am Pacific Time (1:30 pm Eastern Time) on Sunday.
The special question-and-answer session will be broadcast from the Canadian Space Agency’s YouTube channel.

Hansen knows these are challenging times, he said on Twitter, adding that people have a “history of overcoming great challenges by working together.”
Looking forward to spending some time with youth this Sunday answering their space questions. We are all very much focused on the challenge upon us today but also mindful that we have a history of overcoming great challenges by working together. Space is a great example. https://t.co/0nHCsTyhze
