Our cardiovascular system has adapted in the course of evolution to the conditions on Earth. The heart pumps blood through the arteries, supplying oxygen to the cells throughout the body. Due to the changed gravitational forces in space, this system is disturbed, since in weightlessness a redistribution of blood and tissue fluids occurs. In addition to immediate effects, there are also longterm changes in the cardiovascular system, which can be attributed to the adaptation of the body to the changed environmental conditions.
