Such wingless, ballistic shapes had the advantage of simplicity, but serious disadvantages if anything other than basic bioastronautics was the goal.
49) This idea recurred when bioastronautics requirements firmed up in 1960.

Roadmap: "How to support the extensive behavioral research program that would be necessary to validate processes or countermeasures such as select-in/select-out criteria (both for individual crew members and for a composite crew), issues related to cultural diversity, crew interactions, and isolation or stress-induced hazards.
Human subject research is managed by Wyle as part of the Bioastronautics
Under the Bioastronautics
Contract, Wyle provides medical operations, ground and flight research, space flight hardware development and fabrication, science and mission integration for flight, and habitability and environmental factors in support of the Space Shuttle, International Space Station, Constellation and Human Research programs.
Stodieck's primary focus is in bioastronautics
, specifically life sciences space flight experimentation, gravitational biology, and cardiovascular physiology
At NASA's new Bioastronautics
Exhibit at the Johnson Space Center in Houston, visitors will soon be able to lead their own virtual space station tours by commanding a computer with a series of simple hand gestures.
