During the past decade we have seen a significant growth in the aviation and space industry. Large investments and research are being streamed into transporting people quicker and more efficiently across different regions of the planet. This also means that there is ongoing development of aircrafts that fly at higher altitudes and at super sonic speeds that were previously not achievable in a safe way.

Companies in the aviation and space industry have made big strides into getting people into outer space, around the moon, onto space stations and hopefully reaching the surface other planets. Humans are not the only subject at the forefront, there are also efforts towards moving industries that are causing contaminating by-products on Earth, into outer space. 1 2 3 4 5 6

The big picture is that more people will be exposed to the effects of aircraft and altitude. One of the common symptoms that many pilots, flight crew and passengers suffer from is motion sickness.

Currently there are treatments to help prevent motion sickness, but some have undesirable side effects, while others are not as effective.

If we are to improve the comfort in which we will travel through space, we must first start by improving how we travel on Earth.

I hope to offer insight into how motion sickness has such a negative impact and hopefully contribute to improving how quickly and effectively it is treated.
