WP4 - Medicine

aspects médicaux

During a suborbital flight, pilots and passengers are subject to a particular environment and constraints that may be different. Taking characteristics of the reference vehicle into account,

Address one of the following topics:

  1. Taking flight duration and altitude reached during a suborbital flight into account, what are the potential real side effects for passengers? Consequences on their selections?
  2. What is the composition of ionizing radiation from the solar system? What are short- and long-term consequences of suborbital flights? Are they identical for pilots and passengers? Consequences on passenger selections?
  3. During a suborbital flight, passengers and pilots will be faced with a push-pull effect of accelerations: what will be the medical consequences? Can they be simulated? What protections to consider? Consequences on passenger selections? Consequence on crew selection and follow-on?

For this Work Package, a team composed of students in medical university and others in engineering school is encouraged.
