Learn about NASA’s analogs of reduced gravity environments (simulations).
How are they used to understand spaceflight-induced changes in system physiology and cell biology, and how does NASA develop countermeasures to these changes to keep astronauts healthy?
Scientists from the Johnson Space Center will examine multiple analogs like virtual reality, head-down tilt bed rest, underwater environments and the extreme isolation of the Arctic and Antarctic.
