Loneliness and isolation can happen to anyone, anywhere, at anytime – even to astronauts.

Three astronauts and two scientists joined USA Today’s Storytellers Project – sponsored by Humana – and shared their first-hand experiences about fighting loneliness and creating connection – even from space.
Some people stay connected with friends and loved ones, even during the COVID-19 pandemic. But for many others, the pain of isolation and loneliness are not new and have gotten worse during times of quarantine and social distancing.
While the situation for some will evolve as Coronavirus recedes, the loneliness for others will continue.
With the resources and tips we’re offering here, the hope is that you or your loved one need not be lonely anymore, even when alone. Be part of a community, and be #FarFromAlone.
