Since the 1960s, astronauts have pushed the radii of space exploration, putting the human body to the test while exposing themselves to challenging environmental factors. Asspace missions grow longer and more ambitious, health-monitoring becomes a primary factor in planning. The announcement of the The Lunar Orbital Platform-Gateway (LOP-G), commonly referred to as the Lunar Gateway, has created a need for development of healthcare innovation that will monitor health of astronauts through Deep Space missions with less reliance on Earth. Let us explore the recent advancements in health technologies and project currently underway. What are the benefits of these innovations for space travel? What human factors are we most concerned about? Do these innovations provide any benefit to the quality of life on Earth?
