10 Ways Space Damages Your Body

by Kenny Hoeschen

We all know space travel is dangerous. Just as Sandra Bullock, or aspiring astronauts considering travel to Mars. To help us see the big picture, AllTime10s gives us this great video full of 10 ways in which space travel damages your body. The low gravity environment of space affects our muscle tone, circulatory systems, and can decrease bone density. The isolation and sleep deprivation compromised our immune system, which, when combined with difficult hygiene protocols, can result in illness.The psychological effects can also be significant, with the isolation and stress leading to depression, insomnia or other issues.

Of course, these might not affect your decision if you’re signing up for a one-way spaceflight anyway.
