As we approach the end of the year, we would like to take a moment to reflect on everything that we have accomplished at the Space Health Group:

  • Becoming 1 of the 4 candidate teams selected for the SEDS CAN-RGX Parabolic Flight

  • Working on our first payload mission with our biological experiment

  • Developing a heart simulator that will be used for performing Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) in microgravity conditions

  • Participating in outreach events at the Cosmodôme and organizing spacesuit workshop for children

We would also like to thank our members for their hard work, commitment, and dedication. We are looking forward to 2022!
