Detailed Description

608 pgs, 1996, AIAA
ISBN 978-1563471803

Humans in Space Flight is the third in a five-volume space biology series produced jointly by NASA and the Russian Academy of Sciences. The two-book volume describes experimental and observational data and hypotheses emphasizing human adaptation to altered gravity in the first book and acceleration, radiation, and psychological stress in the second. New information covers extravehicular activities, pharmacodynamics, cosmic rays, and conduction of medical investigations in space. The set concludes with a chapter on mathematically modeling spaceflight effects on physiological systems.
