HIGHLIGHTS

  • Various bad effects on the immune system, blood Pressure, the shape of a person’s eyes and joints
  • Reason for such degradation is due to lack of gravity in the space
  • Due to lack of Gravity, the biomechanical forces put some changes in the musculoskeletal system of the body

Recent research by scientists stated effects on the health of the Astronauts due to spaceflight. Researchers told that there are various bad effects on the immune system, blood Pressure, the shape of a person’s eyes and most importantly the joints of the astronauts. They think the only reason for such degradation is due to lack of gravity in the space since the biomechanical forces put some changes in the musculoskeletal system of the body. This system consists of Bone, Cartilage, tendon, muscle, and ligament. The constant exercise by the body in the gravitational force keeps the body maintained but while getting in touch with the non-gravitational conditions, the conditions of the body start to deplete. At the very same time, the reactions reverse while the body is back in touch with the gravitational field. This process goes on when the astronauts ride back forth from earth to planet and planet to earth. The research they received was based on the mice they sent to space. The animal broke its cartilage during the journey. The scientists still need more information so that they can use it in their future space travel to different planets, especially Mars so that they can find a proper solution to such health problems.
