The Wayfinding study and science on board the International Space Station

2018-09-17 - The Canadian Wayfinding study examines astronauts' brain activity to shed more light on the structural and functional changes the brain undergoes in a weightless environment. This research will improve our understanding of medical disorders, such as Ménière's disease, that impair movement, posture and spatial orientation. The Canadian studies conducted on board the International Space Station thus help improve quality of life on Earth.

As part of their collaboration for the 2018 edition of Science Literacy Week, the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) and the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) joined forces with Microfiches to create a series of five posters about space projects. The texts were written by the Canadian Space Agency and visually interpreted by Canadian artists.
