This is the helmet that analyzes the brains of astronauts

Astronauts spend a lot of time training in order to adapt their bodies to different conditions that may come at the time of travel or during the journey. These are times when a lot of demand is required, but on Earth they wonder about other things that later influence the path of these specialists who end up living a long time outside the planet and want to know how it affects the brain. For those situations they have inventedA helmet that analyzes the brains of astronauts.

What is this new helmet for astronauts?

The instruments used in astronaut training are very complete and specific, designed for situations that are strange to people. Zero gravity is the first of all, since we are used to walking on the earth and that the planet attracts us that it is strange to think that you are going to propel yourself and you are not going to fall. Or even move in all directions including upside down.

But all this is not the only thing that can affect a person during a space journey and in Brain.Space have created a device to measure this data. It is a helmet equipped with 500 independent sensors that are placed on the head and that begin to measure the pulses that your brain emits.

Through a electroencephalography (EEG) it is capable of capturing small electrical signals produced when neurons in the brain communicate with each other. Later, the system is able to eliminate all the data that is not useful to keep those that are useful.

The reason is to advance in how these trips to space affect, especially if they are carried out in the long term. It is known that astronauts face physical changes that are later revealed upon their return, but little is known about what zero gravity affects space professionals.

From truck to ISS

Brain.Space’s EEG helmet is unique and looks like it can reveal big data about astronauts. At the moment, what is known is that this device is that it will travel this week on a SpaceX Dragon rocket in order to install it on the International Space Station. It will be then when the experiments begin there thanks to its installation on a platform laptop.
