Astronaut research reveals results of area journey on human bones
A research of bone loss in 17 astronauts who flew aboard the Worldwide House Station supplies a extra complete understanding of the results of area journey on the human physique and steps that may mitigate them, essential data forward of potential future formidable missions. The analysis accrued new information on bone loss in astronauts attributable to the microgravity circumstances of area and the diploma to which bone mineral density might be restored on Earth. It concerned 14 male and three feminine astronauts, common age 47, whose missions ranged from 4 to seven months in area, averaging about 5-1/2 months.
