    Zero Gravity Flight

    Workshop (Amsterdam) by Space Training Academy · POA · Current

    Would you like to experience for yourself what it is like to float weightlessly like an astronaut? You can do this on a "zero-gravity flight" or "parabolic flight". Astronauts are weightless in space. To prepare themselves on Earth for that weightlessness, they regularly undertake parabolic flights. The Space Training Academy organizes parabolic flights, including preparation.

    Microgravity: living on the International Space Station

    MOOC (Online) by Open University · Free · Current

    This course will be covering questions such as, how does the International Space Station (ISS) orbit the Earth? Is circular motion involved? What about the forces? Are they pushing or pulling the ISS to the Earth? What would happen if these forces suddenly disappeared? How does a rocket overcome the Earth’s gravity? How has human endeavour in space impacted on other aspects of our lives? As well as GPS and studying the stars, it has also helped us to study the ageing process! The ISS helps us to study Biology, Chemistry, Quantum Physics and even banking and security! There will be interviews with several scientists along the way. But what about the cost of the ISS? Do you think that it is justified? Finally, could you be an astronaut or a scientist?!

    Space Medicine

    MOOC (Online) by Coursera and Duke University · Free · Current

    Have you ever wondered what it would take for humans to travel beyond the comforts of our home planet, Earth? You are invited to join us in Space Medicine - an online experience facilitated by two recent Duke graduates in which you will learn about and engage in the most pressing medical challenges facing NASA and others advancing the future of space exploration. Space Medicine is a free, non-certificate course featuring interactive modules and weekly live discussions. Participants will reflect on questions pertinent to the future of human health in space, such as: - How do humans respond to extreme environments? - How can engineers, doctors, and scientific researchers come together to prevent space related health issues before they occur? - If future generations of humans attempt to live in space, what challenges will they face? - Which evolutionary adaptations to living on Earth are useful to surviving a months- or years-long voyage? No prior experience in science or medicine is required, as life science concepts will be introduced as necessary. At the end of the course, you will have gained valuable experience in applying modern medicine to space-based situations, from space flight to journeying to Mars.
