PAST EVENT

Manned space flights are increasing, the purpose being to colonize celestial bodies like the Mars. Brain injury has bas been NASA's main concern for astronauts during space travel. Micro gravity makes normal things difficult to do let alone neurosurgical procedures. This article is a discussion of possible problems we are going to face in micro gravity or zero gravity if we perform neurosurgical procedures , the possible neurosurgical procedure that would be feasible to carry out in zero gravity or micro gravity. Review of literature- The problems that we would be faced during performing a neurosurgical procedures in micro gravity or zero gravity are impaired visualization, difficulty in restraining both the patient and crew members, and floating debris. Floating debris in the form of blood, irrigation fluids, pus and bone from drilling skull can be reduced by covering the part to be operated by glove box. Glove box is a windowed, sealed container equipped with two flexible gloves that allow the user to manipulate nuclear materials from the outside in an ostensibly safe environment. This can be used to contain the part to be operated this containing the floating debris that could be sucked out using suction to clear the surgical field.

The 24th Annual International Mars Society Convention is Thursday-Sunday, October 14-17, 2021. This convention presents a unique opportunity for those interested in the planet Mars to come together and discuss the science, technology, social implications, philosophy and a multitude of other aspects of Mars exploration.
