We are the first species with the ability to leave planet Earth and expand the horizons of existence into the infinite realm of the universe. Humanity has been working, learning and building toward this accomplishment throughout history. Those who live and work in space will be no different from their predecessors who left ancient homelands to venture into the unknown wilderness. But to travel and work in space, one must not only know the physical characteristics of the space environment, but also something about the human beings involved. Living in Space explains: -Technology necessary for staying happy, healthy and alive in space. - Effects of acceleration on the human body - The long term affects of living in zero-g conditions - The most harmful forms of ionizing radiation for humans - Nutrition and Sanitation - Basic problems of working in space. The people who go into space to live and work are setting the foundation for humanity’s future.

Grappling with Gravity explores the physiological changes that will occur in humans and the plants and animals that accompany humans as we move to new worlds, be it to colony in the emptiness of space or settlements on the Moon, Mars, or other moons or planets. This book focuses on the biomedical aspects, while not ignoring other life-changing influences of space living. For example, what happens to people physiologically in the microgravity of space, where weight and the direction "up" become meaningless? Adapting to microgravity represents the greatest environmental challenge that life will have encountered since our ancestors moved from the seas to solid Earth. Away from Earth the human body will begin almost immediately to adapt and change, to be able to function in these strange environments. As a person adapts in space he or she will become less fit to live on Earth.

Living in Space is a captivating study across a wide spectrum of the issues that humanity faces, as we look beyond our home planet at future needs, future business endeavors, future learning opportunities, and future homes for our children and theirs. The authors who contributed to this volume present us with a wonderful diversity of perspectives, including the arts, philosophy, business, science, and technology, and the story that emerges from their fine writings engages the imagination. These chapters also engage our vision, and I hope this book helps us to muster the will and the commitment to proceed with the development of space for the benefit of all humanity, as it should be. I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did. -- Edgar Mitchell, Sc.D., Apollo 14 Astronaut, March 26, 2009
