NASA Studying How Zero Gravity Affects The Brain

It's kind of odd that it has taken this long for these types of tests to be done.

Because there's no up or down in zero gravity, the way our brains calculate 3D space stops working. As it turns out, that can be problematic, with astronauts finding it hard to complete basic tasks. It's a phenomenon that NASA wants to learn more about, which is why the agency has started to test a crew's spacial awareness before, during and after their trips to space.
