About Aerospace Medicine
Aerospace medicine concerns the determination and maintenance of the health, safety, and performance of persons involved in air and space travel. Those in the field are dedicated to enhancing health, promoting safety, and improving performance of individuals who work or travel in unusual environments. The environments of space and aviation provide significant challenges, such as microgravity, radiation exposure, G-forces, emergency ejection injuries, and hypoxic conditions, for those embarking in their exploration.
