York U/Canadian Space Agency Vection project

Equipment to support the York University/Canadian Space Agency Vection project is scheduled to blast into space early on the 15th of November from Wallops Island Virginia, aboard an Antares rocket. This supply rocked is scheduled to dock with the International Space Station three days later. Led by Professor Laurence Harris (Psychology) and including Professors Michael Jenkin and Robert Allison (Lassonde), the Vection project is investigating the effects of long duration space flight on the perception of self motion. Experiments on board the ISS are supported by ground control experiments being conducted here at York.

The launch will be broadcast on NASA TV live on November the 15th starting at 4:15am EST.
