NASA – May the Force (Shoes) Be With You

The ForceShoe: May the Force (Shoes) Be With You : Quote: Maintaining astronaut bone and muscle health in microgravity is an ongoing concern for NASA, and now the agency is “forcing” the issue with a new investigation. On May 29, 2014, NASA will fly the ForceShoe, designed by XSENS, to the International Space Station (ISS) and, although these shoes don’t measure the same force of Star Wars lore, they will help NASA collect data for studying the loads, or force, placed on crew member bodies during exercise on the space station’s Advanced Resistive Exercise Device (ARED).
