  1. New simulated weightlessness study- CNES and MEDES further understanding of the physiological effects of microgravity

    Publishing date:

    February 20, 2019

    Right now and until 29 March 2019, 20 volunteers are taking part in a new study into simulated weightlessness using the innovative method of dry immersion. Led by CNES and conducted at its MEDES space clinic, based at Rangueil Hospital in Toulouse, the study aims to simulate the effects of weightlessness on the human body. It will, in particular, enable us to further our understanding of specific physiological mechanisms and thereby improve conditions for astronauts during manned spaceflights.
