Some debate exists over the definition of space (see boundary to space), and hence that of spaceflight.
The US defines spaceflight as over an altitude of 50 miles while the FAI defines it as over 100 km.
For human spaceflights this is relevant for the X-15; as of 2003, 13 of these flights met the US criteria and among them 2 the FAI's.

When the human body is first exposed to microgravity, blood shifts from the lower body towards the heart and head in what is called a headward fluid shift.
Several studies have been done to assess the effects of microgravity on the human body with the goal of preventing muscle atrophy and a decrease in bone density that is common among astronauts.
The human diet will probably consist mostly of cereal (wheat and/or rice) and legumes (peanut, soybean, and/or cowpea) for protein; sweetpotato and/or white potato for complex carbohydrates; and vegetables (lettuce, tomato, broccoli) and herbs (onion, garlic).

 Spaceflights
Human spaceflight is space exploration with a human crew, and possibly passengers (in contrast to dog-manned space missions, which are remotely-controlled or robotic space probes).
An orbital spaceflight (or orbital flight) in the general sense is a spaceflight where the trajectory of a spacecraft reaches the height of, and through having an appropriate velocity enters into, orbit around an astronomical body.
In this latter sense, the expression "orbital spaceflight" is mostly used to distinguish from sub-orbital spaceflights, which are flights where the spacecraft reaches space but does not go fast enough to complete a single orbit.

 List of human spaceflights by program Summary
Human spaceflight since 1961 has been limited to low Earth orbit (LEO) with the exception of the period from December 1968 to December 1972, when twenty-seven U.S. astronauts (three per mission) traveled to the vicinity of the Moon during Project Apollo.
Human spaceflight at the turn of the twenty-first century thus remained a government monopoly.
The possibility of privately operated, profit-oriented human spaceflight activities remained an elusive objective, though it was advocated by a variety of groups and individuals.

They envisioned an ambitious program consisting of a large space stationbeing launched on huge boosters, served by a reusable logistics "space shuttle", both providing services for a permanently manned Lunar colony and eventual manned missions to Mars.
The shuttle program was launched on January 5, 1972, when President Richard M. Nixon announced thatNASA would proceed with the development of a reusable low cost space shuttle system.
