It's easy to tell which way is up and which way is down...or is it? In the freefall of space travel, there's no pull of gravity to tell your body which way is which. Most astronauts and cosmonauts experience some motion sickness when they first arrive in orbit. NASA is studying why.

Collectology - the collecting of science

"Tis education forms the common mind; Just as the twig is bent the tree's inclined." --Pope

Visitor Seeks Help: "Ok here it is. What if for some weird cosmic joke we here on Earth are the first sentient life forms in the universe? What does that mean? Are we searching for something that doesn't exist anywhere else? What are our responsibilities as the first? What does that mean in regards to UFO's? Are we seeing things that are not there? What do we do if we finally find someone else who is farther behind than us? What do we teach them and not teach them? The only real answer I can find is it is funner to have a more advanced race in the universe than us. Someone who will teach us how to overcome our weaknesses. Fix problems we haven't figured out ourselves. But does it being funner make it true?" by Roy Aspinwall. If you would like to leave an answer, go to the Comments page and mail your thoughts.
