(Newser) – Soon you'll be able to fight motion sickness just like an astronaut. NASA is teaming up with pharmaceutical company Epiomed Therapeutics to develop and market a nasal spray for queasy travelers, reports Scientific American. The spacy agency is something of an expert on the subject, and it's found that a drug based on the ingredient scopolamine does the trick. Epiomed will work on turning it into a fast-acting spray, though the drug will have to pass through all the usual FDA hoops before hitting the market.
