NASA Developing Special LED Lights That Will Cure Astronaut’s Insomnia

It's really difficult to sleep in noisy place. Insomnia can cause lower performance, decreased memory, and even sickness. Office people can have a power nap in CalmSpace. But what will the space astronauts do as they are stuck in a noisy machine all the time and within that noisy environment, they have to sleep. We don't know whether the astronauts in space can even sleep well or not in space, but NASA has pointed it out a big fact. Hence, NASA has decided to replace fluorescent lighting panels in the ISS with a Solid-State Lighting Module (SSLM), SDTO 15008U that produces blue, white, or reddish light. NASA hopes these LED lights will cure space astronaut's insomnia.
