Space Preparation : The Wonders of Space Flight, Science Museum
Space is an extremely hostile environment for humans. But it is also a place of inspiration and discovery.
How does prolonged weightlessness affect the body? What has medicine taught us about our adaptation to these conditions? Astronauts need regular meals and look forward to them but the experience of eating in space is radically different. How can we enhance the experience of space food to establish an emotional link with home. How well does simulation and training prepare astronauts for the experience of micro-gravity and how do our brains know which way is up, or where we are at any time? Are astronauts fundamentally changed as people by their experience of the earth from space?
