NASA Human Bodies in Space Status Forum 2011

AV GenresSpace

Summer 2011 NASA Human Body In Space Status Forum.  Suits (a history lesson), Medical (solid information presented very well.. but nothing in the vein of breakthrough revelations), and Astronaut Experience. Plus Q&A..  And the status is?  You could take this and change the date to 2001 or even 1991 and probably even an expert would not see any difference.

Regarding Suits, was I the only one not laughing when it was said that 'those silly commercial guys are going to have to come to us when they start needing space suits'?  Maybe she was right, or maybe without the NASA someday-is-good-enough timescales and pension plans they will end up surprising you (again).
