Gail Perusek manages the Advanced Exercise Concepts Development at NASA’s Glenn Research Center. Basically, she’s one of the fitness guru for the astronauts on the International Space Station. Fitness is a high priority for space explorers because it helps the body fight against bone loss and weakening of muscles. Believe it or not, there is an entire gym on the station – NASA just had to be a bit more resourceful than usual in designing that gear. Consider this – gravity on the space station is near zero, so everything floats and weights are feather-like. NASA counters this with a lot of resistance training gear (think BIG strong rubber bands) and devices to help exercising astronauts stay in place. They will have to get even more resourceful once human missions to Mars start – with smaller devices for the long trip.
