Space Dementia - feelings of insignificance, insecurity lack of social contact and the astronauts awareness of total isolation from the human race.

is there any famous case of space dementia?

[-sorry if this topic is a little dumb-]

It's a fictional mental disorder from the film Armageddon.

'Feelings of' those things are not, by themselves diagnostic of 'dementia', which is a progressive decline in cognitive function.

There were reports of Mir Astronauts (Russian) that had 'problems', but so far, the longest stay has been a number of months and there were other people with the Astronaut at the time.

In the Russian experiment in a simulated Mars mission, done in an isolated structure on the ground, people were 'acting crazy' after only a few months. But temporary behavior isn't the same as true dementia.

I guess you're a fellow Muse fan!!

I got into Muse years ago before I got into conspiracies and the like - imagine my surprise when I found out a lot of Muse lyrics are conspiracy-driven!!

As for Space dementia, I guess a lot of us can feel that without even leaving the planet...

Good to know you are a Muse fan.

its kind of weird because, most of the Muse fan base does not believe or care about conpiracy theories.

is good that you, and me are getting the message.
