The strange condition afflicting astronauts during extended zero-gravity missions

Astronauts on lengthy space missions risk suffering from “space fever”, according to a new study. Low gravity in space, and the weightlessness this induces, is linked to an increase in body temperature of about 1C. Such changes in body temperature do not appear suddenly, but gradually develop over around two and a half months.
