We are delighted to share the latest newsletter from the Jus Ad Astra Project regarding human rights in space, and a link to a recent article about the Project. As well as the rights to water, a breathable atmosphere, and a habitable environment, the ‘right to health’ is also an important human right, as humans cannot ‘survive and thrive’ in space if they do not have the right conditions for good health and wellbeing.
It was an honour to contribute to the blog post on “Space for all Humankind: Gendered Perspectives in Health” with Jane Andrews.
