Finally, a website that encourages its users to have their heads not just in the clouds, but in outer space! This is an excellent educational website about a number of biological issues related to space travel. For instance, did you know that space flight alters the process of bone remodeling? Or that if you travel to space, it can take up to six weeks after you touch back down on Earth to restore the red blood cells that you’ve lost? In so many ways, this site explores the important truth that antigravity does more to the body than allowing it to float in mid-air. Organized into a number of modules, this site provides an introduction, readings and references, teaching resources, and research/application for each theme. The organization is great and the information is interesting. It’s enough to make anyone want to be a space cadet…in a good way!
