Where the human goes medicine must follow – true words. However, when the destination is novel and on the ragged edge of survivable, medicine takes more of a lead role in protecting, enabling, and documenting that very human activity of exploration.

Space medicine has matured in practice and expanded in scope, and has served as an effective focus for cooperation between nations, agencies and industry.

Looking through the lenses of history and candid personal experience, this will discuss what the human in space has taught us, the intersections with other extreme environments, and how all this applies to an exciting and rapidly evolving new world order in human expansion.
