Discovered a new disease that can develop during space flight

Perhaps the person in space waiting for the inevitable death

Elon Musk, and many other famous faces from the aerospace industry dream as soon as possible to send people to Mars and other planets. Only here before that they need to develop a credible space ships and, most importantly, to secure the health of future colonizers. While with the development of vehicles for space travel aerospace company cope with creating a comfortable environment for people, things are not very good. The fact is that in weightlessness the human body takes a lot of changes like that can dramatically shorten a person's life. Recently in the scientific journal published the results of a study that showed the astronauts the development of serious problems with the circulatory system.

We are Talking about education in the circulatory system of astronauts, the so-called blood clots — blood clots, which prevent it to flow freely through the circulatory system. Moreover, they are formed inside the jugular vein, which is considered one of the most important for human life. The fact that they are in the man's neck and play a major role in transporting blood from the head into the lower part of the body. It is noteworthy that the clots formed in the internal jugular vein, which is the main vessel carrying blood from the cranial cavity.

the Jugular vein in the neck

What happens to a person in space?

Convolution of blood were found in 6 of the 11 astronauts, who had previously spent time inside the International Space Station. Their identity is carefully hidden, but we know that blood clots formed in just 50 days on station. Before returning to Earth the astronauts had to be treated with anticoagulants, which are medications to reduce the activity of blood coagulation.

by the Way, recently Russian scientists have developed a device for

Scientists don't know exactly what might be the consequences of blood clots in the internal jugular. But in delaying blood inside the human head is no good — if you tried to stand on my head, then after some time probably started to feel bad. While on Earth we feel fine, thanks to that perfectly takes care that the blood from his head had spread to all the lower parts of the body. But in non-gravity well feel impossible, because the blood is distributed unevenly throughout the body.

it may feel good except on the Ground

According to the researchers, the delay of blood in the head at least can lead to facial swelling or weakening of the hands and feet. While further study of this issue may well apparent that in this condition of the body, the person may suddenly die. Thus, scientists urgently need to develop methods for the prevention of blood clots in the so-called jugular veins. Or, at least, you need to find an effective cure of thrombosis.

Otherwise, about the space travelling can be forgotten. After all, it would be a disaster if you go in flight to another planet in a crew just up and dies. In the absence of a solution to this problem of humanity remains except to send into space robots.
