Getting Your Bearings
Produced by: Judith Kampfner
Losing your balance and feeling dizzy? It happens as we grow older, and astronauts are trying to help us figure out why. Why do we get seasick? Why do we get any kind of motion sickness? What is going on in our bodies that so disturbs our equilibrium? The effects of motion sickness--disorientation, maladjustment to environment, and human flexibility to adapt--are the same effects experienced by astronauts in outer space.

Part II in our mini-series on space research, funded in part by WABE-FM and the Morehouse School of Medicine in Atlanta, Georgia.
