Loss of Gravity and Other Terrible Things: How Does the Human Body Act in Space?

You’ve probably been told many, many times that everything in the cosmos is connected.

We obviously need the Earth for food, water, air, and all the other basic necessities, but what I really want to do is explore how we rely on this planet in ways that, perhaps, we’ve never even considered. And to me, it seems that the best way to explore our connectedness to the planet is to leave it behind…and take a short trip into space.

Going to space can be awesome, but it can also be terrible. Find out why at:
