Join the Space Flight Simulation Study
The Flight Analogs Project Team at the Johnson Space Center is conducting a series of studies that support the scientific needs of the space program. These studies develop methods to keep astronauts healthier and safer when they spend a long time in space without gravity. NASA calls these methods “countermeasures” and uses them to minimize the changes that occur to the body during space flight and enable the return of normal body functions once back on Earth. Healthy test subjects are needed for these studies!

The Test Subject Screening (TSS) at the Johnson Space Center is responsible for providing qualified test participants for ground-based research.

Currently the TSS is recruiting participants for the following studies:
The Exercise Study (CFT 70)
Countermeasure and Functional Testing Study - 70 Days
This study is designed to minimize loss of muscle, bone and cardiovascular function through high intensity interval-type aerobic exercises on alternating days, with continuous aerobic exercise daily.
14-day study on the effects and relationship of age, sodium intake and blood vessel compliance to the VIIP Syndrome
Countermeasure and Functional Testing Study - 14 Days
The purpose of this research study is to examine your vision before, during and after bed rest and to investigate the effects of sodium intake on venous and arterial compliance during bed rest.
