Ana Diaz Artiles, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Aerospace Engineering, Texas A&M University
Bioastronautics and Human Performance Lab

Dr. Diaz Artiles describes how space life in zero gravity affects the human body and how space engineers are taking on the challenge. Her field of bioastronautics develops engineering innovations like artificial gravity with the study of human adaptation to a space environment. As we move toward colonization of space, this is the science to watch!
