The Project

We need your help and input on an exciting project. In 20 years or less the first Astronauts will travel to Mars, a monumental voyage of discovery for humankind. Your opinion is important in focusing on what mission planners will need to better define, understand and manage the potential and actual challenges for coping with acute and chronic injury on missions to the Moon and Mars.

It is a short questionnaire, that will take very little of your time and you will actually be making a meaningful contribution to science. The results of the questionnaire will then be published.
