I always suspected that improvements in health would come from researching the biological toxicity of high altitude to the sea level adapted human.
The more I research high altitude astronomy, the more troubling I find the long term detrimental biological effects are.
The long term health problems that high altitude exposures cause are far more wide ranging than what the current generation of books document.
Your attitude towards failure determines your altitude after failure.
Your attitude, not your aptitude, will determine your altitude.
