Astronauts spend six months to one year on the International Space Station, performing engineering tasks, research, maintenance and upgrades. During this time, access to medical care is crucial, as altered routines and microgravity have deconditioning effects on crew members’ bone and muscle, fluid distribution and immune function. Examine NASA’s current use of telemedicine in the care of astronauts in orbit, and learn about opportunities being considered for future exploration class missions.
