NASA Research Indicates Microgravity Can Induce Abnormal Blood Flow and Clotting

A study released November 13th, 2019 by NASA researchers has revealed that of 11 International Space Station crew members who participated in the study, “6 crew members demonstrated stagnant or retrograde flow in the internal jugular vein on approximate flight day 50, and 1 crew member developed an occlusive internal jugular vein thrombus during spaceflight”.

We are exploring options for combating this unfortunate side effect of microgravity.
