Precision Immunization: NASA Studies Immune Response to Flu Vaccine

Is it possible to have a personalized vaccine with fewer side effects?
http://www.nasa.gov/content/flu-vaccine-in-space

NASA Human Research Program Twins Study investigator Emmanuel Mignot, M.D., Ph.D, known for discovering the cause of narcolepsy is related to the immune system, is studying twin astronauts Scott and Mark Kelly. He’s investigating how their immune system responds to the seasonal flu vaccine over the…

May the Force (Shoes) Be With You

Help us better understand exercise in microgravity, these shoes will. The force is strong with the ForceShoe, the most stylish sandal in space.

Maintaining astronaut bone and muscle health in microgravity is an ongoing concern for NASA, and now the agency is “forcing” the issue with a new investigation.

Give Me Some ‘Space’!

Researchers at NASA's Johnson Space Center are using spaceflight analogs to study isolation and confinement.

If two is company and three is a crowd, what is four – especially when you are living and working in close quarters and under stress for several days? That is what NASA’s Flight Analogs Project, funded by NASA’s Human Research Program, set to find out.

HRP Spaceflight Analogs with Joe Neigut and Ronita Cromwell

What's similar to being in space? Being in a spaceflight analog! Joe Neigut and Ronita Cromwell of NASA's Flight Analogs Project tell you why.

Analogs have been used for a very long time at NASA and they continually refine and evolve over time but the concepts of analogs always stay the same.

Congratulations to the 24 investigators selected to carry on the critically-important human research required to enable humans to go to Mars, not just to survive but to work at high levels of performance for years.
I think if an object achieve speed of light or more,object mass must be zero.
