Sourcing Health Innovation for Astronauts … and Beyond!

Did you know that many innovations can be traced back to space travel? Memory foam, LED lights, baby formula, and CAT scans are just a few examples. Cool, huh? And now, a new way of sourcing innovation may also have its roots in space, thanks to The Collaborative Health Innovation Platform (known as CHIP). CHIP is a machine learning platform that is currently assisting the NASA-funded Translational Research Institute for Space Health (TRISH) source innovation for astronaut health – matching healthcare companies with startups and technologies to address gaps identified by NASA, that are keeping astronauts from visiting Mars.
