    IAC-14 — 65th International Astronautical Congress


    This symposium jointly organised by the International Academy of Astronautics (IAA) and the International Astronautical Federation (IAF) addresses all aspects of space life sciences research and practice in human and robotic spaceflight, from Low Earth Orbit (LEO) to the universe beyond, and from the Big Bang to the lives of future explorers on other planets of our solar system.

    A1.3. Medical Care for Humans in Space

    This session focuses on medical care for astronauts including operational medicine aspects, countermeasure development and applications as well as needs for future care for astronauts during long term stays in space and missions to and on the Moon and Mars. A further focus will lie on medical care for passengers and operators of commercial suborbital and orbital space flights.

    A1.4. Radiation Fields, Effects and Risks in Human Space Missions

    The major topics of this session are the characterisation of the radiation environment by theoretical modelling and experimental data, radiation effects on physical and biological systems, countermeasures to radiation and radiation risk measurement.

    A1.5. Astrobiology and Exploration

    A new era os space exploration will soon expand into a global endeavour to achieve highly ambitious goals such as establishing human bases on the Moon, journeys to Mars and the construction of new infrastructures in space. Astrobiology plays a key role in the strategic search for organic compounds and life on Mars and other planetary objects in our solar system and can provide support in the preparation of human exploration endeavours. The session invites papers of astrobiological content supporting future robotic and human exploration missions.
