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.
Our Advocacy Program provides each Society member a voice in the process.
Funding is critical. The more we have, the more effective we can be, translating into more missions, more science, and more exploration.
