USC researchers work with Polaris Dawn to study a new approach to X-ray imaging in space

Today’s space flights typically last from a few days to a few months, so medical treatment on board is mostly limited to first aid. But researchers are increasingly exploring new ground – known as in-flight space medicine – that will be key to maintaining astronauts’ health on longer missions, such as the 21-month round trip …
