Being “Down-to-Earth” Might Make You Snore

In the days leading up to our announcing the theme for Ci 4.0, we gave clues on social media. Our second clue was: “The topic of snoring will inevitably come up this year.”

So, how does the topic of snoring relate to Space Exploration?

According to flight surgeon, Dr. J.D. Polk, there is less airway obstruction in space, so the likelihood of snoring is space is greatly diminished. Dr. Polk says, "Earthly snoring occurs when gravity pulls the tongue and soft tissues in the rear of your mouth backward. If your airway is partially obstructed, you get these tissues flapping. In microgravity, the tongue and the jaw do not fall back in the throat, so there is less airway obstruction in space." 

Certainly, our campers are “out of this world,” but we can’t promise they won’t snore!

Learn more about this year's theme, "Space Exploration," and apply for Ci 4.0 today!
