Living in Space



Astronaut Frederick W. "Rick" Sturckow, pilot, gets a workout on the bicycle ergometer, on the Space Shuttle Endeavour. The human body loses muscle and bone mass rapidly in space. To fight this loss, two hours of strenuous exercise will be built into every astronaut's daily schedule while living on the Space Station.
