Health in Space: Daring to Explore (Travelling Exhibition)

Astronauts’ health is a top priority from the time they’re selected until well after their final mission.

Health in Space is a travelling exhibition that explores how gravity, radiation, and isolation all pose unique health challenges for astronauts living and working in space. Highlights include authentic artifacts, interactive experiences, and video interviews with Canadian astronauts. A featured section within the exhibition will profile David Saint-Jacques, a Canadian astronaut and medical doctor, and his mission to the International Space Station.

This travelling exhibition was developed and produced by the Canada Aviation and Space Museum in collaboration with the Canadian Space Agency.
