Habitat for the Disabled
November 26, 2012
I need a habitat (read Robert Heinlein's "Waldo") for a similar reason. Waldo had MG, I have IBMPFD, which is even worse. There is "no treatment, no cure, no hope"; so a low (no) gravity environment would prolong (a little) my life. Certainly, the evaluation could be used to determine effects for healthy people.
An asteroid or comet headed for Earth is the only large-scale natural disaster we can prevent. Working together to fund our Shoemaker NEO Grants for astronomers, we can help save the world.
