The Aerospace Physiology Lab at Simon Fraser University conducts research related to human physiological responses and adaptations to terrestrial and space environments. They specialize in non-invasive measurement of cardiovascular, respiratory, blood flow, tilt table and exercise testing capabilities, with access to climatic, dive and altitude chambers. A4H Associate Member Dr. Andrew Blaber directs the lab.
Yuri's Night is an international celebration held on April 12 every year to commemorate space exploration milestones. A4H has a MOU with Yuri's Night on mutually beneficial activities.
KickSat is a an in initiative to develop tiny, inexpensive spacecraft called Sprites that can be launched into low Earth orbit for just a few hundred dollars each, allowing anyone to explore space. A4H sponsored its own Sprite fleet, which you can join!

A4H Clients

The following organizations have hired A4H to carry out microgravity research experiments:

Saber Astronautics builds cutting edge technologies to streamline tasks required to live and work in space, making it more accessible to people on Earth. A4H completed a parabolic flight in February 2011 to test the physiological effects of Vostok Space Beer in microgravity.

TESTIMONIAL: "We hired AstronautsForHire to support our first microgravity flight experiment because of the demonstrated experience of their team and their ability to accomplish the job. While Vostok Space Beer is a fun science experiment, it has strict compliance constraints and requires a high degree of hands-eye coordination. A4H delivered everything with consummate professionalism and diligence, with the attention to detail expected from medical and aerospace field research. Thank you A4H!" -- Dr. Jason Held, Director, Saber Astronautics
Vital Space aims to apply state of the art mobile health technology, analytics, and multidisciplinary clinical expertise to capture human performance during aerospace training and flight. The physiologic data captured will be used to validate health technology and tools to visualize and enrich the flight experience, as well as create medical risk models for commercial spaceflight. A4H has a MOU with Vital Space on mutually beneficial activities and completed a series of parabolic flights with them in May 2012 to test the Sotera Wireless ViSi Mobile system in microgravity.

TESTIMONIAL: "As part of the Vital Space team, A4H played an important role in helping the team have a scientifically productive and fun flight experience. Their unique insight and broad range of expertise greatly contributed to solving both technical and operational challenges present in testing cutting edge space life science technology. A4H and their colleagues are clear assets to space research efforts - Vital Space looks forward to continuing collaboration with A4H on innovative, future research." -- Dr. Ravi Komatireddy, Director, Vital Space
