General KnOWLedge: What is motion sickness?

Why we sometimes feel ill when what we see and what we feel don't add up
motion sickness

We human beings are often on the move. Here, there, everywhere. Always somewhere to go, somewhere to be. For work. For pleasure. Go, go, go!

But whatever the journey, things don't always go smoothly. Sometimes mid-trip, we start to feel... uneasy. Queasy. Dizzy and ill. And before we know it...

Motion sickness!

Next stop: Sickville? Oh no!

In today's OWLconnected General KnOWLedge, we're looking at motion sickness. What it is. How it happens. And whether or not there's a point to us feeling so ill against our will!

So grab a paper bag and press play below! (Just kidding, this video is 100% nausea-safe. Promise!)
