Living at Zero-G: What Space Exploration Teaches Us About Health


Living at Zero-G: What Space Exploration Teaches Us About Health

Space travel has become a routine occurrence, with astronauts traveling to and from the International Space Station (ISS) every six months from a number of different countries. But we’re still not sure of the health consequences — does ‘extreme travel’ change our bodies, and what challenges might zero gravity pose to our health? Could this extreme environment help us pioneer novel therapies here on earth? Join us for a panel discussion on the health benefits and risks of interstellar trips and explains why medicine must follow wherever humankind go.

Donal O’Gorman is Interim Director of the National Institute for Cellular Biotechnology (NICB), a leading research institute located on the DCU campus in Dublin. He is Ireland’s leading expert on human physiology in space environment, bed rest studies, and assessing countermeasures to the effects of microgravity on the human body and links to ageing in the general population.
