In few years frequent space travel by humans may be a reality. Space travelers need livable environments and protection from the exacting conditions of microgravity and radiation in space. Basic understanding of human physiologic responses to and countermeasures against the intense and varying levels of forces, such as during high acceleration on ascent, microgravity in space and partial gravity on the Moon, the fiery deceleration on descent through Earth’s atmosphere, and finally readjustment back to Earth’s gravity is necessary to lessen the risk of human health in space. Understanding health issues in space will eventually result in better healthcare on earth.
One of the 2040 visions of the Space Brain Trust experts is to have Identified and utilized technology to lessen the risk of human health in space.
What solutions/technologies are needed to reduce health risks in space?
