Helping pilots and astronauts reach greater heights!
The Mayo Clinic has been associated with aviation and the American Space Program for a long time. Prior to World War II the Mayo Clinic developed the first oxygen masks that allowed pilots to fly at greater altitudes. They have also helped with research and innovation to overcome the effects of G-forces on pilots, allowing them to fly without blacking out.
