Creator: Gilles Clément, Gilles Clément (Ph.D.), Angelia P. Bukley | 2007-07-06

The Space Cycle at the of the University of California Irvine Center generates artificial gravity levels ranging from 1 to 5 g on both the rider who powers the cycle and the rider who performs the squats or other types of exercise.

About this book
Protecting the health, safety, and performance of exploration-class mission crews against the physiological deconditioning resulting from long-term weightlessness during transit and long-term reduced gravity during surface operations will require effective, multi-system countermeasures. Artificial gravity, which would replace terrestrial gravity with inertial forces generated by rotating the transit vehicle or by short-radius human centrifuge devices within the transit vehicle or surface habitat, has long been considered a potential solution. However, despite its attractiveness as an efficient, multi-system countermeasure and its potential for improving the environment and simplifying operational activities, much still needs to be learned regarding the human response to rotating environments before artificial gravity can be successfully implemented. This book reviews the principle and rationale for using artificial gravity during space missions, and describes the current options proposed, including a short-radius centrifuge contained within a spacecraft. In Artificial Gravity, experts provide recommendations on the research needed to assess whether or not short-radius centrifuge workouts can help limit deconditioning of physiological systems. "Aided by an exquisite group of experts, Gilles Clement and Angie Bukley have managed to put together THE new, comprehensive reference book on artificial gravity. This book will be an essential resource for students, scientists, and program planners alike." -Oliver Angerer, European Space Agency "Drs. Gilles Clement and Angie Bukley have provided a unique book that looks at the practicability of artificial gravity, and have invited respected experts in the space flight community to contribute to this discourse. Like the early 1960 studies of artificial gravity, their book charts the future, guiding both seasoned investigators and students with the tools necessary for understanding the complex problems of artificial gravity and the effect of that environment on biological systems." -Millard F. Reschke, NASA, The Johnson Space Center

    better than plasma car

    0 5/5 K.K. - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: EIGHTBIT Swivel Car Rolling Ride On Car- Indoor / Outdoor (Toy) I ordered one swivel car and one plasma car. The swivel car is far better than the plasma car. The swivel car had real wheels like on a skate board - not plastic wheels like the plasma car. It is so quiet on smooth on the hardwood floors. I rode it with my 9 month old baby and he loved the ride. So weight limit is good as I bought it for preschool and school age kids. The kids and adults loved it so much I ordered two more and returned the plasma car since it would NOT go on the hard wood and husband had fears of it scratching the floor! I put two of the cars together with no issue at all. Took all of 5 minutes! It arrives in a amazon box and when opened it is not in it's own box but a plastic bag. Plasma car arrived in it own plasma car box. One swivel car had a issue and called the swivel car company - got a generic answering maching - I left a message but it has not been returned yet. I returned it to Amazon with ZERO issues and will get another swivel car! 0, March 18, 2013

    Great Outdoor Toy!

    0 5/5 Happy Grandma - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: EIGHTBIT Swivel Car Rolling Ride On Car- Indoor / Outdoor (Toy) The swivel car was a great hit with my 6-year old granddaughter. She quickly learned to manipulate the car so that she powered it entirely with her arms. The color was bright and cheerful, and we were able to quickly put the car together. I anticipate her having many hours of great fun on this swivel car. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 23, 2012
