For Writers: Astronaut Blindness

astronauts

Today’s writer topic comes from QSFer J. Scott Coatsworth:

I saw this article the other day and it fascinated me:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/national/health-science/the-mysterious-syndrome-impairing-astronauts-eyesight/2016/07/09/f20fb9a6-41f1-11e6-88d0-6adee48be8bc_story.html

It seems like it could be addressed eventually with rotating space stations and centrifugal force, or maybe artificial gravity? I wonder how long is “safe” to be in a weightless environment?

And what other things might space do to the human body? I smell plot bunnies!
