Body & Health

Getting ready for the mission involved Richard testing his body to the extreme … on centrifuges and other simulations. Being space sick isn’t much fun! Richard also had to prepare for the immense G Forces on his body and be ready to bounce away in microgravity and then be prepared to get used to life back on Earth. Healthy living and eating is key both to training as a cosmonaut and the success of the mission.
