Episode 18: Spacing Out

With the release of the new Star Wars trailer this weekend, Dr's J and Santhosh wrap up their interview on space medicine with Pharmacist Eleanor O'Rangers and Nurse Practitioner Linda Plush. Along the way, they discuss bone loss, whether a trip to Mars would require wheelchairs, the biggest complaint of returning astronauts, the best kind of bed to prepare for space, the trade off between exercise and vision in micro-gravity, space dentistry, why your grandma is the best astronaut (hint: she's expendable), gender differences, cosmic poultry, the gravity prescription, and some surprising medical technologies you didn't know came from NASA. So Sit back, and in this final part of our space trilogy, learn about long term care and tech in the final frontier!
