PTE READING FILL IN THE BLANKS: ZERO GRAVITY ENVIRONMENT
Researchers already know that spending long periods of time in a zero-gravity environment — such as that inside the International Space Station (ISS) — results in loss of bone density and damage to the body’s muscles. That’s partly why stays aboard the ISS are capped at six months. And now, a number of NASA astronauts are reporting that their 20/20 vision faded after spending time in space, with many needing glasses once they returned to Earth.
The new study, published in the Journal of Radiology, examined the eyes and brains of 27 astronauts who had spent an average of 108 days in space. MRI scans showed that spending just 30 days in space resulted in a rare medical condition called intracranial hypertension — where “pressure inside the skull rises and presses on the brain and backs of the eyes,” says Ian Sample at Britain’s Guardian.
