Behavior in Space

  • Robert W. Phillips
Part of the Astronomers' Universe book series (ASTRONOM)


Gravity is the bane of our elderly years. As we age, we become less physically fit. Our sense of balance and equilibrium are less effective and our muscular reflexes become slower. We sag. We lump. We shuffle. We fall. Growing old is not for the faint hearted. It requires hard work and perseverance. The force of gravity complicates the problem. Since Earth’s gravitational force causes problems for seniors they might consider moving to a lesser gravity field.
