Microgravity exists where only very small gravitational forces are experienced. This is a unique environment that creates new opportunities and challenges for scientific research, technology development, and human spaceflight.
We can use microgravity to study how living organisms adapt and change in a weightless environment – this research can help us better understand the effects of long-duration space travel on the human body but can also lead to the development of new medical treatments and therapies.
Additionally, microgravity can be used to study physical phenomena, such as fluid dynamics and combustion, and aid the development of new material and alloys which would be otherwise impossible to study here on Earth.
