Mission 2: Body Space
The ESA DVD has been developed with the support and input from experts, teachers and their pupils from across Europe. Scenes for ISS DVD Lesson 2 were filmed during the DELTA Mission (2004) of Dutch ESA astronaut André Kuipers. The video looks at the effects of a weightless environment on the human body: how our sense of balance and direction are affected; how blood pressure changes in different parts of the body; how your height changes in space; and muscular atrophy and changes in bone density. Many of the simple experiments performed in the schools can easily be repeated in the classroom.
