“For the first time ever, world-class microgravity research was possible for small companies, research institutions, Fortune 500 companies, government agencies, and others interested in tapping into the unique space environment.”

What Is Microgravity?

“Microgravity is the condition in which people or objects appear to be weightless. The effects of microgravity can be seen when astronauts and objects float in space. Microgravity can be experienced in other ways, as well. “Micro-” means “very small,” so microgravity refers to the condition where gravity seems to be very small.”

“Most commonly, medications are administered during space missions to treat sleep disturbances, allergies, space motion sickness, pain, and sinus congestion. These medications are administered under the assumption that they act in a similar way as on Earth, an assumption that has not been investigated systematically yet.”
