Access to Space

Private Human Access to Space Volume 1: Suborbital Flights, Published 2014, 98 pages. In this cosmic study booklet we have provided an overview of the different issues and challenges associated with private suborbital spaceflight. An historical perspective was provided to set the stage for addressing the technical challenges still to be overcome. The various elements required for the business of space tourism, including spaceports, vehicle design, to include interior considerations, were addressed.

Bed Rest Studies

Guidelines for Standardization of Bed Rest Studies in the Spaceflight Context, Published 2014, 70 pages. Bed rest studies, in which healthy volunteers are confined to bed in a 6° head-down tilt position, are a well-established model for some of the adaptations experienced by astronauts during spaceflight. They are therefore a very valuable tool both for investigating possible mechanisms and for testing measures to counter these adaptations.
