When astronauts go up into space, they are often confined to their spaceship for long intervals of time. This can cause motion sickness, or any other sickness, that can occur when being confined in a small space or when in motion. Motion sickness is caused by confusing information sent to the brain from the senses, mainly the vestibular system and the eyes. The Space Sickness Pill (S.S.P) works to block the signals from the vestibular system, and from there dampen the information that conflicts with the other senses. The S.S.P would be especially useful to astronauts who are claustrophobic and/or are prone to motion sickness.
