Nutritional Biochemistry of Space Flight
Edited by Scott M. Smith, Sara R. Zwart, Vickie Kloeris and Martina Heer
Besides covering a broad range of issues relating to space nutrition, this book presents the knowledge of nutritional biochemistry of space flight that has resulted from five decades of space life sciences research and operations. It covers research and observational findings on space travelers, as well as ground-based analogue studies with human subjects in such venues as bed rest, closed chambers, Antarctica, and under the sea. This book serves as a historical record of nutrition as related to space flight, specifically to nutrient requirements in a space flight environment. Evidence is reviewed from the first days of human space flight through what may very well be the early days of permanent off-Earth human presence. This information has been scattered in research articles and limited reviews that have been published over the years, in some cases documented only in out-of-publication NASA documents. The book will be of interest to scientists and physicians in many disciplines, including nutrition, physiology, biochemistry, space life sciences, and aerospace medicine. The text is aimed at an upper-undergraduate or graduate-student level of understanding.

Thanks, Chris.

This book is one of the evidence reports compiled and published as HRP-47060 by the NASA Human Research Program.

Our goal was to make the collected knowledge of human responses to four decades of space flight available to future investigators, so they could build on it and help us move forward into the solar system more quickly and safely.

The Institute of Medicine, of the National Academies of Science, reviewed our efforts, and you can read their report card on us.

Some reports were stronger than others, but Scott Smith and colleagues clearly led the way with a report so complete and credible that it was published as a stand-alone book.

Full disclosure: I am not just a space nerd, but also the Chief Scientist for the Human Research Program.
