Going into space is pretty fraught with peril, and the men and women who do so are incredibly brave. In addition to the whole not-being-on-freaking-Earth-anymore thing, there's also the ubiquitous motion sickness. So NASA has set its eyes on developing a nasal spray that could combat motion sickness.
The privately owned, California-based Epiomed Therapeutics has teamed up with NASA to make Dramamine for the space age.
At the moment, NASA has been using intranasal scopolamine (INSCOP) to combat motion sickness. It's fast-acting but can only be taken as a tablet, via a transdermal patching or injected. A nasal spray, obviously, is a great deal more convenient and works more quickly, to boot.
Epiomed is also working the NAVY to test the spray.
For us non-space folks, this could be pretty useful for any fishing-trip-turned-vomit-city incidents.
