Scientific background:

In order to continue their spectacular advances in space exploration, NASA and partner space research agencies are focusing intense effort on establishing a permanent station in space. Tremendous health challenges have arisen, however, as astronauts are required to spend ever longer spans of time in a weightless environment. The fundamental physiological principle “If you don’t use it, you’ll lose it.” is as true in space as it is on earth. In a weightless environment, therefore, research reveals that postural muscle tone declines 50% every ten days and bone mass (osteoporosis) declines 1% every 30 days before leveling off at the vastly lower levels of strength and function. As a result, intense research is underway on how to maintain maximum postural muscle tone and bone density despite long periods of static postures.
