According to this article at lightyears.blogs.cnn.com
space really does change the shape of your optic nerve! About half of the astronauts coming back from the space station are experiencing a change in how they see. Scientist think this is due to inter cranial pressure. But it doesn’t affect women. And the men affected are affected in different ways. Some recover, others do not.
Further research must be done to determine how this affects the future of space travel.
