Space Station Live: Measuring Body Changes During Spaceflight
NASA Public Affairs Officer Brandi Dean talks with Dr. Sudhakar Rajulu, principal investigator for the Body Measures experiment taking place aboard the International Space Station. This study collects anthropometric data to help researchers understand the magnitude and variability of the changes to body measurements during spaceflight.
