Saleh Al-Amiri, the pioneer of Emirati space simulation, published a video that includes a tour of his room at the Medical and Biological Research Institute in Moscow, where he is running the first Emirati space simulation mission. Pressure measurement, where he works daily to record the pressure and temperature data and sends it to the doctor specialized in the task.
During his tour, Al-Amiri explained that these data illustrate the extent of the impact of isolation on humans, and determine the effects of stress caused by confinement and isolation on the blood circulation and musculoskeletal functions of the crew members during the task of measuring clinical, genomic, transcriptional and proteomic indicators.
