    Human Stem Cells Grow Differently in Space : Discovery News

    So unless we find a way to stop bone loss while in space this puts a serious crimp on deep space exploration for mankind. Is this a sign that it will only be our robots doing the leg work up there or do you think that scientists may have something with bisphosphonates?

    At some point we will leave this earth or die out.

    We may evolve into something very different than we are now.

    Yes... because the proof that we were something else is overwhelming.

    It seems that the human body needs gravity to develop right. If a child is born in zero g, they will never be able to return to earth.

    Saw it on the Science Channel.

    Which is one of the many, many..... many reasons the man needed to be out of office. Now, being that his reign is history, does it help that Obama has sent NASA packing up shop and opened the space exploration/development market to the private sectors? IMO, I do think it is a good thing because the private sectors will compete in this arena and competition breeds creation.
