Space Station Live: Tracking How Astronauts Run in Space

Do we run differently in space than we do on Earth? The answer may surprise you. NASA Public Affairs Officer Lori Meggs talks with John DeWitt, principal investigator for the Treadmill Kinematics experiment aboard the International Space Station. Treadmill Kinematics is the first rigorous investigation to quantify the biomechanics of treadmill exercise conditions during long duration space flight on the station.

Watch the full Space Station Live broadcast weekdays on NASA TV at 10 a.m. CDT. http://www.nasa.gov/ntv

Running in Space!

NASA astronaut Karen Nyberg, an Expedition 37 flight engineer aboard the International Space Station, demonstrates how astronauts run on the COLBERT treadmill in a weightless environment. Station crew members exercise for at least two hours every day to keep fit and to prevent the loss of muscle mass and bone density that occurs during long-duration spaceflight.
