Two Men Spent 340 Days in Space

Between March 2015 and March 2016, a man spent a total of 357 hours being poked and prodded: sacrificing blood and urine, sweating through sprints and letting others read his journals oh; and living on the International Space Station. The man was Scott Kelly, and with his Russian counterpart, Mikhail Kornienko; he spent a total of 340…

European Space Agency funding for UOW invention

Space is the boundless three-dimensional extent in which objects and events have relative position and direction. Physical space is often conceived in three linear dimensions, although modern physicists usually consider it, with time, to be part of a boundless four-dimensional continuum known as spacetime. The invention that measures astronauts’ levels of radiation exposure will improve the safety of humans and electronics during space missions. In other words, UOW…

Space is the boundless three-dimensional extent in which objects and events have relative position and direction. Physical space is often conceived in three linear dimensions, although modern physicists usually consider it, with time, to be part of a boundless four-dimensional continuum known as spacetime. The concept of space is considered to fundamental importance to an understanding of the physical universe. Research Institute for Space Health The Translational Research Institute…

Brain Condition Related To long-Term Spaceflights

More people today are poised to explore space than ever before; those who will experience the effects of microgravity on the human body. Recognizing the need for more data related to those effects, Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) neuroradiologist Donna Roberts, MD, and co-author Lonnie G. Petersen, Ph.D., "The Study of Hydrocephalus Associated With Long-term Spaceflight (HALS) Provides New Insights into Cerebrospinal Fluid Flow.

Long-Term Spaceflights Could Adversely Affect Astronauts

NASA hopes to send humans to Mars by 2030 on a round-trip mission that could take up to three years far longer than any human has ever traveled in space. Such long-term spaceflights could adversely affect certain cells in the immune systems of astronauts, according to a new study led by University of Arizona researchers.

Micro Pressure Flexible Sensor For Aerospace Vehicle

When flight vehicles (e.g., aerospace vehicles, Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites, near-space aircrafts, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and drones) fly at high speed, their surfaces suffer the micro-pressure from high-altitude thin air. The long-term effect of this pressure causes the surface components of flight vehicle to deform or fall off, which can lead to a serious accident.
