Le but de cet article est d’informer la communauté de la maîtrise des risques sur les pratiques méthodologiques et organisationnelles mises en œuvre en matière d'assurance de la sécurité au cours des campagnes de vols paraboliques menées en Europe, dont la maîtrise d’œuvre est assurée par la Société NOVESPACE (filiale du CNES). Cet article décrit l...

Aircraft parabolic flights provide repetitively up to 20 seconds of reduced gravity during ballistic flight manoeuvres. Parabolic flights are used to conduct short microgravity investigations in Physical and Life Sciences and in Technology, to test instrumentation prior to space flights and to train astronauts before a space mission. The European S...

... Treatment of unforeseen health events in space is a major concern that can jeopardize crew health and mission success (Hamilton et al., 2008;Alexander 2016;Patel et al., 2020). This concern has given rise to several studies on open surgery, laparoscopic surgery, and robot-assisted surgery as well as studies of human physiology in microgravity (for a review of the literature, see Panesar et al., 2018(Melton et al., 2001Campbell 2002;Dawson, 2008;Kirkpatrick et al., 2009a;Kirkpatrick et al., 2009b;Kirkpatrick et al., 2009c;Doarn et al., 2009;Pletser et al., 2009;Haidegger et al., 2011;Canga et al., 2016;Ashrafian et al., 2017;Panesar and Ashkan 2018;Baker et al., 2019;Hinkelbein et al., 2020;Kirkpatrick et al., 2020;Robertson et al., 2020). Although in space the risk of trauma is low, objects in movement conserve their mass and still carry a kinetic energy (Komorowski et al., 2018;STEMonstrations 2022) so that damages to the human body are likely to occur. ...
... During the reduced gravity period of, respectively, microgravity, lunar and Martian parabolas, a transitory phase of a few seconds appears first, with variations of about 10 À1 g around respectively 0, 0.16 and 0.38 g in the Z direction, followed by a period of respectively approximately 20, 25 and 32 s with acceleration levels of about, respectively, a few 10 À2 , 0.16 and 0.38 g. Accelerations along the aircraft longitudinal X-axis (aft to front) and transversal Y-axis (right to left) are less than 10 À2 g for all parabola types [12]. ...
