However, United and Chase are not allowing travelers to figure out how to overcome jet lag by themselves. They have partnered with Timeshifter, a cutting-edge app created by eminent scientists under the direction of Dr. Steven W. Lockley, an associate professor at Harvard Medical School and Timeshifter's chief scientist. The goal of the software is to aid travelers in understanding jet lag and addressing its root causes.

And if you're still unsure, just ask Mike Massimino, a former NASA astronaut who now serves as a Timeshifter advisor and is a fervent user.

A year's worth of access to the Timeshifter jet lag software will also be given to the winner, enabling them to get the most out of all their prospective travel plans.
