Making an impact isn't limited to what's happening here on Earth. Meet Laura and Michael Doyle, the daughter-father pair who are working to make exercise fun for NASA astronauts using mixed reality. ISSIE turned Astronaut Cady Coleman's mention of the detrimental impact of zero gravity on the body and the need for two hours of exercise daily into a game that Astronauts would want to play, making fitness fun! Watch this interview to hear what Michael and Laura had to say about their creation, their vision for the future, and the title of the books that will one day, undoubtedly, be written about their lives.
