Mars Flight Goal of Bio-science Research

National Aeronautics and Space Administration is concentrating its advanced human factors research on developing the technology to sustain man for the durations required to reach Mars. This research effort includes basic physiological investigations to qualify the human system for long space journeys, work on regenerative life support systems and studies of the extent to which man can function as an integral part of spacecraft systems.

Nasa, Usaf Develop Advanced Medical Experiments

Man and the extent of his usefulness in space will be subject to a series of tests in the next phases of the U.S. manned space flight program. The most critical of these will be continued extra-vehicular activtiy (EVA) experiments to determine the physiological cost of operations outside spacecraft cabins.
