Presented by Michigan News

A pair of experiments designed by engineers at the University of Michigan is en route to the International Space Station to obtain more information on the effects of space on bone density. Allen Liu, U-M associate professor of mechanical engineering, and members of his research team answer questions in this faculty Q & A. The discussion centers on the connection between bone density, osteoporosis, and gravity and how this research can benefit human health.
