Excerpt

Human anatomy and physiology have been shaped by Earth’s gravitational force. When exposed to the microgravity of space, all our cells, organs and body systems are affected. Psychosocial issues also cause concern, while space radiation is another hostile factor to which astronauts are submitted. Beyond this, there are clinical conditions and medical emergencies that crewmembers have developed during and after spaceflight. This article introduces some well-known aspects related to physiological and psychological changes, and concerns regarding radiation limits during space missions. It also discusses health issues and medical emergencies reported during human space exploration. …
