  1. Pilot Field Test: Performance of a Sit-to-Stand Test After Long-Duration Space Flight

    Abstract: Astronauts returning from the International Space Station (ISS) are met by a team of recovery personnel who typically provide physical assistance and medical support immediately after...
  2. Colonoscopy Screening in the US Astronaut Corps

    Abstract: Historically, colonoscopy screenings for astronauts have been conducted to ensure that astronauts are in good health for space missions. This data has been identified as being useful for...
  3. Bluetooth Heart Rate Monitors for Spaceflight

    Abstract: Heart rate monitoring is required for crewmembers during exercise aboard the International Space Station (ISS) and will be for future exploration missions. The cardiovascular system must be...
  4. Recovery from a Simulated Fall and Quiet Stance Stability After Long-Duration Space Flight

    Abstract: Most of the ISS crew members who attempted the demanding RFF task within1-5 hours after landing were able to complete it and perform the remaining PFT tasks. This finding was important as...
  5. Efficacy of Stochastic Vestibular Stimulation to Improve Locomotor Performance in a Discordant Sensory Environment

    Abstract: Astronauts exposed to microgravity face sensorimotor challenges incurred when readapting to a gravitational environment. Sensorimotor Adaptability (SA) training has been proposed as a...
  6. Calf Strength Loss During Mechanical Unloading: Does It Matter?

    Abstract: During the mechanical unloading of spaceflight and its ground-based analogs, muscle mass and muscle strength of the calf are difficult to preserve despite exercise countermeasures that...
  7. Pilot Field Test: The Ability to Ambulate After Landing as Assessed with Seat Egress, Walk, and Obstacle Test

    Abstract: Astronauts experience alterations in multiple physiological systems due to exposure to the microgravity conditions of space flight. These changes lead to disruption in the ability to...
  8. Compiling a Comprehensive EVA Training Dataset for NASA Astronauts

    Abstract: Training for a spacewalk or extravehicular activity (EVA) is considered hazardous duty for NASA astronauts. This activity places astronauts at risk for decompression sickness as well as...
  9. Cerebrovascular Accident Incidence in the NASA Astronaut Population

    Abstract: The development of atherosclerosis is strongly associated with an increased risk for cerebrovascular accidents (CVA), including stroke and transient ischemic attacks (TIA). Certain unique...
  10. Effects of Long Duration Spaceflight on Venous and Arterial Compliance

    Abstract: Background: The visual impairment and intracranial pressure (VIIP) syndrome is a spaceflight-associated medical condition consisting of a constellation of symptoms affecting approximately...
  11. Our Place in the Universe (Session 1. History of Astronomy.)

    Abstract: This session includes a very broad overview of a couple of the major ideas of astronomy, along with demonstrations of Earth's motions that, give rise to the seasons, show us the "faces" of...

  13. A Decade of Change in NO2 and SO2 over the Canadian Oil Sands As Seen from Space

    Abstract: A decade (20052014) of observations from the Ozone Monitoring Instrument (OMI) were used to examine trends in nitrogen dioxide(NO2) and sulfur dioxide (SO2) over a large region of western...
  14. Use and Assessment of Multi-Spectral Satellite Imagery in NWS Operational Forecasting Environments

    Abstract: NOAA's Satellite Proving Grounds have established partnerships between product developers and NWS WFOs for the evaluation of new capabilities from the GOES-R and JPSS satellite systems....

    Fluid Shifts

    Abstract: We hypothesize that microgravity-induced cephalad fluid shifts elevate intracranial pressure (ICP) and contribute to VIIP. We will test this hypothesis and a possible countermeasure in ISS...
  17. Using Mass Spectrometry to Detect Silanol Compounds in Water from the International Space Station

    Abstract: The water produced by the U.S. Water Processor Assembly (WPA) on the International Space Station had virtually undetectable levels of total organic carbon (TOC) during the first 18 months...
  18. Space Telerobotics: Remote Operation of Robots in and from Space

    Abstract: This presentation summarizes work done by the Intelligent Robotics Group to develop new space telerobotics.

  19. Heart Rate Responses to Unaided Orion Side Hatch Egress in the Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory

    Abstract: The Orion capsule will be the next NASA-built vehicle used for near and deep space exploration. The nominal landing scenario for Orion involves splashdown in the Pacific Ocean and...
  20. Post-Flight Back Pain Following International Space Station Missions: Evaluation of Spaceflight Risk Factors

    Abstract: Back pain during spaceflight has often been attributed to the lengthening of the spinal column due to the absence of gravity during both short and long-duration missions. Upon landing and...
  21. UNNUMBERED OPERATIONAL AREAS (UNOA) PRL 229 SWMU Assessment Report Confirmatory Sampling Work Plan Addendum Revision 1

    Abstract: This document provides the regulator with changes to the original confirmatory sampling report submitted in April 2015.
