Decompression to altitude: assumptions, experimental evidence, and future directions.
TLDR
Findings and uncertainties will produce further physiological challenges to solve in order to line up for the programmed human return to the Moon, the preparation for human exploration of Mars, and the EVAs implementation in a non-zero gravity environment.

Spleen Contraction During Sudden Eupneic Hypoxia Elevates Hemoglobin Concentration
TLDR
It is concluded that acute normobaric hypoxia of only 10 min caused significant spleen volume contraction with Hb increase, and this rapid spleen response, evident already after 3 min of exposure, could have a protective effect during sudden exposure to severe Hypoxia.

TLDR
Results suggest that intranasal administration of neuroprotective peptides may be used as prophylaxes to prevent the impairment of episodic memory induced by hypoxia and oscillatoryhypoxia-hyperoxia.
War in Space: why not? A neorealist analysis of International Space Politics (1957-2018)
Why has there never been a space war? The most powerful states on Earth – the US, China, Russia – have all developed anti-satellite weapons (ASATs), but they have never used them to destroy each

Similar to outer space, the stratosphere experiences freezing temperatures, with atmo- spheric pressures and oxygen levels far below the level required for human survival. Exposure to this

Human Physical Stresses at Normal and Abnormal Cabin Pressures
TLDR
This chapter will discuss the physics and physiology of hypoxia, describe cabin pressurization and discuss the health effects at normal cabin pressure and following unplanned depressurization.
