Spine :

Spine :

Astronauts are taller in space! On Earth, gravity compresses our spine. When gravity is weak, the space between the vertebrae in our spine is able to expand.

Muscles :

Muscles :

In space, muscles aren't really needed to hold up the body. Over time, they become weaker and deteriorate (worse). Astronauts must exercise everyday to prevent this from happening.

Blood :

Blood is normally pulled towards our feet by gravity. But in space, the blood and fluid is pulled towards the head giving astronauts puffy faces.

Bones :

Like our muscles, bones aren't needed much in microgravity. Without exercise, they deteriorate and become weak and brittle.
