SPACE BIKE FOR ASTRONAUTS
ORANGE, CA, Astronauts may soon be able to participate in a Tour de Space of sorts. Researchers at the University of California, Irvine, have developed an exercise bicycle to be used in the zero-gravity environment of space. They say the bike, dubbed Space Cycle, would combat the loss of bone and muscle density and cardiovascular fitness that astronauts suffer during long stints in space.
