NASA astronaut showed how he re-learned to walk on Earth

When a person is a long time in space, and it is not earthly gravity, then return to the planet he could experience serious problems with spatial awareness. It is with such a negative effect at the time faced astronaut space agency NASA Drew Feistel, returning to solid ground after the work on the International Space Station.

NASA astronaut showed how he re-learned to walk on Earth

Shortly after landing, the spacecraft "Soyuz MS-09", has delivered to the ISS Russian cosmonaut Sergei Prokopiev, German ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst and NASA astronaut serine Aunen-Chancellor Feistel published in his "Twitter" video in which he literally re learns to walk the earth.

In the video, an astronaut is trying to get by with closed eyes in a straight line, getting used to the earth's gravity.

Welcome home # SoyuzMS09! On October 5th this is what I looked like walking heel-toe eyes closed after 197 days on @Space_Station during the Field Test experiment ... I hope the newly returned crew feels a lot better. Video credit @IndiraFeustel

"Welcome," MS-09 The Union ". That's right, from heel to toe, and with closed eyes I walked on October 5 after 197 days on the International Space Station. Hopefully just returned crew feel much better than I did, "- wrote Feistel.

The publication Mashable reports that the crew of the International Space Station two o'clock physical training is carried out on a daily basis. They run on a treadmill, using an exercise bike, squat and so on. This is done in order to minimize the loss of muscle and bone tissue, as long as people are in microgravity. But this does not mean that it will be easy to immediately adapt to Earth's gravity.

Upon returning to Earth, astronauts must undergo physical and medical checks during which doctors analyze how their bodies change during space flight.

For NASA, these data are of great value, as the agency plans to send people to the future in a more long-term space missions within the solar system. If people want to ever go to the same Mars, scientists must first understand how the human body responds to a very long space flight, weightlessness, and the effects of cosmic radiation.

At the moment, the most suitable place for such checks is the International Space Station, where cosmonauts and astronauts will spend a lot of different scientific and medical scientific experiments, learn about where you can and from our news channel in the Telegram.
