Long distance space travel leaves you short, fat and ugly, claim scientists


www.telegraph.co.uk

Going boldly where no man has gone before is likely to leave you going bald, claims scientists – not to mention fat and ugly.

Making long space journeys, like those envisaged in the future, will not be good for your looks or figure, claim scientists who believe they will leave astronauts looking short, fat and bald.

They believe living permanently in space for many years, perhaps even for many generations, adversely affects human's looks because they will not require any effort to move or keep warm.

Interesting story. I thought NASA had done plenty of tests on exercising in space to avoid exactly this scenario? This line caught my attention though:

"Without gravity, fluid would float up to pool in the skull, which would cause the head to look permanently swollen out of proportion."

Greys, anyone?!?!?!

Most Westerners seem to be short, fat and bald these days thanks to Fast Food ... this hasn't diminished it's popularity.
Similarly, Space Travel will be fine as long as they don't establish a McDonalds on the ISS.

I always wondered how Captain Picard was bald


On a serious note, I await more information later on saying staying in space is healthy.

They contradict themselves constantly in articles.

Lot of nonsense and a waste of money.

Unless of course we have been going to space for long enough to study in depth but I doubt it.

Damn, I had a fantasy about aliens coming to Earth, they all looked like Jessica Alba and their homeplanet was totaly devoid of males, they were looking to abduct male humans and take them back. If they're fat and ugly when they get here, what will they be like when we get there?

You just RUINED it!

I think that is just NASA just trying to get people to not want to go into space. I mean I thought the reason they had tredmills and exercise bikes was to prevent getting fat and losing bone density.

With the Google X-prize and similar contests, people are treding on goverment teritory. Im not saying space is owned by anyone, but I would think that the world Gov'ts want to keep civillians out.

But the whole fuild in the head thing makes alot of sence...Like other have posted Greys come to mine aswell as " ET ". But I just think the " Short, fat, bald and ulgy " statement is to get people to not want to go into space.

This must be why so many races prefer wormhole technology and hollow out astroids and set up various bases, because they don't want to just stay aboard their crafts. Of course, our conditions aboard a craft, and theirs are somewhat different, for I imagine they can make crafts appear like mini worlds inside too with all the right conditions for their requirements, and plenty of physical activity. After all, scientists say there are stars billions of years older than the sun, this means quite a bit of higher technology is available. So they're just talking about our commonly known capabilites. Who knows whats hidden. Just saying.

Next time I see those bald, short, fat, and ugly folks, I'll be thinking long distance space travel.
Yeah, more like, "you're definitely not from this planet".

I suppose if the astronauts ship / space station had an artificial gravity equal to that of Earth or slightly heavier, then their short, fat and ugly theory goes out the window. As long as they get regular exercise and eat healthy food...... and have a plastic surgery Dr. on board to FIX the ugly.
