Astronauts need to add space headache to their list of occupational hazards, say researchers.
After quizzing 17 seasoned astronauts they found more than two-thirds suffered from headaches on missions yet were headache free back on earth. The disabling headaches appeared unique - described by the crew as "exploding" - and were generally unrelated to common space motion sickness. The Dutch investigators work is published in the journal Cephalalgia. They propose space headache should be classified as a separate entity in its own right.

"Astronauts do encounter genuine problems caused by space and it is important to understand more about these."
