ONE CONCEPT INCLUDED IN THE CONFERENCE “Extraordinary Adaptation to Chronic Hypoxia and Life at High altitude”:

The proposal of IPPA of the use in Space Vehicles of the environmental oxygen levels, PIO2 of 94 mmHg (1/3 less than at sea level) equal to those of the city of La Paz. This would facilitate travel in space tremendously, as it would speed up the preparation for using the space suits for extravehicular activities, it would save oxygen (a scare resource in space) and would hence save energy. Furthermore, it is postulated that man should adapt to chronic hypoxia for the future. The benefit of life under chronic hypoxia are remarkable.
