    Sometimes you don't have to run to feel your muscles and your body! Just get into the right position and hold it long enough... You'll feel muscles you never felt before! Well done El Paso Astronauts!

    Manchmal musst du gar nicht viel rennen, um deine Muskeln zu spüren. Nimm die richtige Position ein, halte sie eine gewisse Zeit und du wirst Muskeln spüren, von denen du nicht wusstest, dass du sie hast! Sehr gut gemacht, El Paso Astronauts!

  • Living bones - strong bones

    living bones

    The El Paso Astronauts learned a lot about bones. They started working on the spine - recognizing that everybody is taller in the morning, except the astronauts in space. There is no gravity pushing on the intervertebral disk.
    After that they discovered that not only the right nutrition keeps the bones strong. Choose a sport you like and exercise - your bones will get even stronger!
    Finally a paper model showed how the inner structure of bone makes them hold a lot!

    Well done!!!
