Event description

Description

Colonizing space- be it on the Moon, Mars, an Asteroid or a space station, is the future we are heading towards at an ever-increasing pace.

No longer just the vision of Science Fiction writers, TV shows or governmental agencies, Space exploration is emerging as one of the most exciting industries, with people like Elon Musk, Richard Branson and Jeff Bezos developing affordable, reusable human space travel- with the goal set at colonization.

But what about the human body? Are we able to sustain life in prolonged low gravity? How will prolonged exposure to radiation affect us? If we were to live in space- what effects would that have on our genetics? Immunity?

During our discussion, we will describe some of these challenges and what is already being developed to address them. We will also describe some of the fascinating spinoffs from space medicine research already in use in daily medical practice.
