Some of his contributions in the scientific field include knowledge of the inner ear, motion sickness, disorientation, and biological effects of space flight. Some of Money's interests include badminton, skiing, acrobatic flying, skydiving, fishing, and reading. In 1956, Money competed at the Olympic Games and placed fifth in the men's high jump event. In 1989, he won the U.S. masters badminton championship in Miami, Florida.
 
Money was selected by the National Research Council of Canada as an astronaut candidate in December 1983, but left the Canadian Astronaut Corps in 1992 without having flown in space. He acted as Spacelab Payload Operations Controller for a Spacelab mission in 1992.
 
During the same mission, Money served as the alternate astronaut, having the capability to fly if needed. He is credited with the invention of an experimental surgical operation called semicircular canal plugging, which is now being used in North America and Europe to treat particular types of dizzy spells.
