What if you could limit the amount of bone loss in your own lifetime by simply wearing a certain kind of suit? Would you do it? What if that suit was a next-generation skintight suit designed for NASA astronauts? This new suit may be the wave of the future and it's being tested out by astronauts right now. A stretchy suit that mimics the effects of the Earth's gravity has been developed in the US to spare astronauts the ill effects of long missions of weightlessness. Returning astronauts have lower bone density and muscle mass and can even suffer separation of their vertebrae. The suit is made of a fabric with carefully tailored stretchiness.
