Astronauts will enjoy a healthier and stylish space travel soon, thanks to MIT scientists. The researchers are developing a skintight bodysuit prototype that promises reduced bone loss in space. It is claimed that astronauts lose about 1 to 2 percent of their bone mass outside earth’s orbit just within a month. So, the body-hugging Gravity-loading Countermeasure Skinsuit has been designed to mitigate bone loss.
Developed at MIT’s Man-Vehicle Laboratory, the trendy suit fashioned from elastic mesh applies pressure on the bones similar to what your body weight does on Earth. The tight-fitting bodysuits offer great comfort in a spacecraft or on a space station, but are not meant to be worn while on space walks. This amazing suit is just perfect for a fashionable space journey.
