Gap CV4: Is 1/6-g exposure protective of 1-g orthostatic tolerance?
Last Published:  07/29/22 01:33:20 PM (Central)
Responsible Element: Human Health Countermeasures (HHC)
Status: Closed
Closure Rationale
No current or future work on this gap is needed as it is no longer relevant to the updated research strategy.
Closure Documentation:
No Closure Documentation Available
Description

Initial State of Gap: It is unknown if the partial gravity found on the lunar surface will be protective of orthostatic tolerance. 

Target for Gap Closure: Provide evidence to determine if 1/6-g prevents OI events upon return to Earth.

Interim steps:

Conduct a flight study before and after a mission to the lunar surface to confirm any detrimental/protective effects of 1/6-g


Approach:
No progress will be made toward closing this gap until a directive is received to return to the moon.

Target for Closure
No Target for Closure available.
