We talk about how the human body reacts to space travel, with astronaut and physician Dave Williams and science writer Elizabeth Howell, authors of Why am I Taller?

Hello everyone!

This week on The Cosmic Companion, we look at some of the effects space travel has on the human body and examine some of the ways we can help protect human travelers to the Moon and beyond.

Later in the show, we will talk with physician and two-time astronaut Dave Williams, as well as science writer Elizabeth Howell. We will be discussing their new upcoming book, Why am I Taller?

Since humans first traveled to space in 1961, we have been learning about how harsh environments beyond our home planet affect human beings...

(note: There were technical issues with the audio track during the interview, and we were also not able to put in a music track. Sorry about that, Chief!)

Dave Williams and Elizabeth Howell appear on The Cosmic Companion 20 Sept. 2022. Released under Creative Commons 4.0 Attribution 2022 The Cosmic Companion.

NEXT WEEK on The Cosmic Companion: We are on vacation. Lucky us! However, on 4 October, we will look at ways of Making Space Sustainable. We will be talking with Daniel Bock, CEO of Morpheus Space. Make sure to join us then!
