Wednesday 24th: ‘Extreme environments: The physiological and psychological impact of spaceflight‘ talk by Jonathan Laws, Researcher in the Aerospace Medicine Rehabilitation Laboratory at Northumbria University @ The Old George, Newcastle

While human beings are well-adapted to life on Earth, advanced technologies and intense motivation are needed to survive in the depths of outer-space. The zero-gravity environment beyond Earth’s protective atmosphere can have deadly consequences for astronauts if they do not push themselves to the limit to survive. Adventuring into outer-space can also impact the minds of astronauts, sometimes in a world-changing way. This talk will explore an overview of the psychological and physiological challenges and experiences that astronauts encounter during spaceflight.
