The success of any space flight mission depends not only on advanced technology but also on the health and well-being of crew members. This book, written by an astronaut physician, is the first practical guide to maintaining crew members health in space. It combines research results with practical advice on such problems as bone loss, kidney stones, muscle wasting, motion sickness, loss of balance, orthostatic intolerance, weight loss, psychosocial problems, and excessive radiation exposure. Additional topics include pre-flight preparation, relevant gender differences, long-duration medical planning, post-flight rehabilitation, and the physiology of extra-vehicular activity. Designed as a handbook for space crews, this text is also an invaluable tool for all the engineers, medical personnel, and scientists who plan and execute space missions.

"This book gives an outstanding, comprehensive, accurate, and factual depiction of the alterations to human systems that are associated with space flight. The predicates and data in the book are amply supported by extensive references. Dr. Buckeys recommendations at the end of each chapter are a blueprint for evidence-based solutions to mitigate the major adverse effects that crews face in the hostile environment of Space. The book is a valuable reference and a must read for anyone who works in the Space Medicine domain."----Bobby R. Alford, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, National Space Biomedical Research Institute
"This outstanding book contains in succinct and clear language what we know today about the physiological aberrations that affect astronauts and others who venture into space...The author eloquently integrates this eclectic information into one volume, affording readers a reasonable understanding of the medical and physiological hazards of space flight. He tells us what we know, what we don't know, and what direction we must take."--JAMA
