Light Goggles

Resting in his bunk on the U.S.S. Paul Hamilton, a sailor wears light-emitting goggles for a short time after waking. When this photo was published in an August 2018 story about sleep, scientist Nita Shattuck was testing the goggles to see if they could reset sailors' internal clocks.
