What A Year in Space Does To The Meat-Suit !
« on: April 15, 2019, 09:43:49 AM »

In the debate over whether human beings should set off to other worlds beyond Earth, one of the most compelling cons is this: Our bodies donít like it.

Few people know this better than Scott Kelly, the NASA astronaut who spent nearly a year on the International Space Station from 2015 to 2016. Like other astronauts, Kelly served as a test subject in the study of space travelís effects on the human body. Unlike other astronauts, Kelly has an identical twin, Mark, an astronaut himself. This gave researchers an uncommon opportunity to monitor the two brothers as they lived in two very different environmentsóone on Earth and the other 250 miles above it.

I know exactly what you mean. Let me tell you why youíre here. Youíre here because you know something. What you know you canít explain, but you feel it. Youíve felt it your entire life, that thereís something wrong with the world.
You donít know what it is but its there, like a splinter in your mind
