Physiological Adaptation: Crew Health In Space 871872
The Spacelab Life Sciences-l (SLS-1) Shuttle mission is sponsored by the Life Sciences Division at NASA Headquarters and is dedicated to investigating biomedical issues pertinent to man's presence in space. In particular, experiments will be conducted to investigate medical and biological systems which advance human habitation in space. The experiments examine physiological complications which result from short duration space flight and subsequent return to the 1-gravity environment of Earth. Results of the experiments are expected to provide fundamental information pertinent to the management of biomedical issues associated with short-duration space flight and begin to address issues related to long-duration space flight required for the Space Station and interplanetary travels.
