Space Sickness
« on: 10/22/2018 10:45 pm »
I'm looking for specific information about Space Adaptation Sickness, aka vomiting in space.

How long does it usually take from launch until symptoms of space sickness begin?

How long does space sickness typically last?

How many people get space sick? I've seen claims from "nearly all" to "about half," and does that mean about half of people vomit, or about half experience some form of space sickness, which may include mild nausea or dizziness?
