Do you fancy traveling to space? Maybe it would be nice to know some drawbacks like gravity 0 … do not you think the big deal? Look at all that can affect … 1
10) Sudden Urine

For when the bladder is filled to 2/3 full and we are desperately looking for a bathroom, but due to gravity 0 bladder space can reach their full potential without warning. This has caused the urine to go out without warning, fortunately the astronauts have an ALLY on their side: adult diapers … no, no joke, in fact, they use them to store urine which they then recycle for drinking water .

9) = puke Burping

It would be normal that the gas produced in our stomach, to break down food and leave to rise as belching, but space remains in the stomach. Any attempt to burp can cause vomiting. This is one of the reasons why NASA does not allow carbonated drinks like soft drinks or beer in space. Although according to the ASI astronaut James Newman is enough to push a wall, forcing the gas in one direction (out through the esophagus) and stomach fluids in the other.

8) Balls sweat

A gravity 0 body’s natural ability to absorb calcium in the bones does not work, muscles atrophy also because they are not using them much. The solution is to spend a couple of hours a day exercising. And here the detail as this is stuck around the body in drops, a towel will be enough to remove them and then use them as a source of water.

7) The eyes flooded

If someone wins the feeling will complicate things and tears form a layer completely clouding vision. That happened to IEE astronaut Andrew Feustel in 2011 during a seven-hour space walk. Feustel had to scratch the eye in a device that is used to protect the nose during pressure adjustments.

6) Obstructing mucosa

Gravity also ensures that we produce mucus to drain through the nose and throat drains. Therefore, in space the sticky matter is piled up leaving the symptoms of a mild cold (headache, nasal congestion, a decreased sense of smell and taste). Of course the astronauts are ingenuous and to remedy this evil they use hot sauce and other spicy foods.

5) Disorientation

The utricle and saccule use sensory hairs on a membrane layer, when we are more inclined, changes in the membrane, and the hairs curve tells us the change in balance. But in weightless environments there is no reason for the membrane to change. This triggers what is known as space adaptation syndrome (disabling discomfort, nausea, headaches, vomiting and so on).

4) Fairy lights

already on Apollo 11 in 1969, it was reported that the astronauts saw bright flashes of light in the dark when his eyes were closed. Although it is not known for what triggers such a reaction, it is suspected to be caused by high-energy cosmic rays from beyond the solar system. I tell you, when we see something on earth, light from the object strikes the photoreceptors in the back of our eye. Photoreceptors send signals to our brain that forms an image. NASA scientists suspect that the phenomenon of colored lights is caused by cosmic rays that pass directly through the eyelid to hit the photoreceptors.

3) Brains bloody

brutal sounds, but this means that the body’s blood flow is interrupted, the blood flows into the upper torso. This causes swelling of the blood vessels of the head and neck and the face looks swollen. The astronauts call it “Full moon face,” apparently about four days before the circulatory system adapts. Although the swelling actually disappears completely until they return to Earth.

2) Exhaustion

According to popsci, the International Space Station orbits the Earth every 90 minutes, which means that anyone on board sees 16 sunrises and sunsets every 24 hours. This unbalances the circadian rhythm. On average, astronauts sleep two hours less per night, this puts them in a perpetual state of jet lag, which can lead to exhaustion, increased irritability, and decreased reaction times and concentration.
