Dunno. I am mostly immune to seasickness, and that has a track record of being -susceptible to space-sickness. I was hoping to find out by now, dagnabbit! When I was a kidling, I figured I'd be able to retire to Luna City.
Ignorance is not a point of view. You have a right to your own opinion, but not to your own facts.

Ayup. And with my eyesight, my overrides are to trust the majority inputs, so proprioception + magnetics will override vision, so I know I'm not moving in a virtual map. Seriously can't navigate those virtual first-person-shooter maps because I'm not getting my primary inputs for navigation from the silly things.


Balance goes out the window in microgravity, so would you be able to reject the erroneous input from that?

Now I'm wondering how magnetoreception might work outside the Earth's magnetic field.

Could I get lost easily on the moon or Mars?

As I understand that -- there is no "N"/"S" magnetic pole -- just a bunch of small localized magnetic regions which, if strong enough for you to sense, would have you feeling you were getting turned around as you just walked a straight line from one region to another.

Mars has no effective magnetic field -- https://www.sciencealert.com/nasa-wants ... -habitable sounds like a plot stolen from Highlander II (though H-II was supposed to be a shield compensating for the run-away ozone hole)
