LAHORE - An anthropologist at the University of Florida Jeffrey Johnson is studying the importance of humour during extensive spaceflights in NASA.

In an interview with The Guardian, he shared, “These are people that have the ability to pull everyone together, bridge gaps when tensions appear and really boost morale.

“When you’re living with others in a confined space for a long period of time, such as on a mission to Mars, tensions are likely to fray,” he added.

“These roles are informal, they emerge within the group. But the interesting thing is that if you have the right combination the group does very well. And if you don’t, the group does very badly,” he explained.

“It’s vital you have somebody who can help everyone get along, so they can do their jobs and get there and back safely. It’s mission critical,”  Johnson clarified.

So we guess, ZERO was not a completely baseless movie, you can absolutely go to Mars if you can make people laugh!
