A variety of sensory and perceptual problems will arise in connection with space flight, both for the occupants of space vehicles and in certain instances for support personnel. The solutions to these problems are interrelated and tremendously complex, thus requiring cooperative efforts among many scientific disciplines.

Visual Problems of Space Travel discusses the problems of space flight as they relate to the visual mechanism. This book updates the National Research Council report Sensory and Perceptual Problems Related to Space Flight, and presents additional information regarding specific critical visual problems, as well as a recently compiled, extensive bibliography of research in this file.
