A Lot of Problems astronauts have to face when travelling in the space. They have to face challenges in everything and travelling in the space is not all that fun and enjoyment that it seems like .
SpaceX’s first flight surgeon, Indian-origin Dr Anil Menon is among the new recruits who will report for duty in January 2022 for NASA’s 2021 Astronaut Candidate Class which will train for the agency’s future missions.
45-year-old Menon born and raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota, to Ukrainian and Indian immigrant parents, has previously served NASA as the crew flight surgeon for various expeditions on the International Space Station (ISS).
“When people are in space, food tastes different because your nose gets stuffy because the fluid starts floating up there. So I have heard from a lot of astronauts that Indian food is their favourite food because it’s spicier. It’s a medical fact.” Said anil.
Menon was the first responder during the 2010 earthquake in Haiti as a physician in the 2015 earthquake in Nepal, and the 2011 Reno Air Show accident.
In the Air Force, Menon supported the 45th Space Wing as a flight surgeon and the 173rd Fighter.
